Floral Herringbone Quilt

September 10, 2014 Sarah Coggins

I mentioned last week that I had been pulling together ideas for our little girl’s blue, yellow & coral room. I had purchased fabric at my local quilt shop with the intent of making a duvet cover for Dylan’s crib comforter. Then I realized I had some crib size batting in my sewing stash so I thought I might make a simple quilt with a single fabric on each side.

Then I found a quilt idea on pinterest of a Herringbone Quilt by Alexis Middleton at Persia Lou and my semi-crazy pregnant self decided to attempt to make my own. I started over Labor Day weekend. Admittedly, there were several moments where I nearly tossed the entire thing in the trash. I used the seam ripper more times that I can count. And had to take a couple of cool off moments.

But, I did it. It has it’s imperfections, but overall, I’m quite proud of my first ever quilt.

The photo above shows the quilt hanging on the changing table I found on Craigslist and painted to match the yellow dresser in the room. I’m debating either a solid navy cover for the changing pad or, if I have some leftover fabric after I make the crib skirt and teething rail cover, to make a matching cover for it. Yes, I’ve gone crazy nesting!

My finished squares were 4×4. I stitched a similar pattern to the one used in Alexis’s quilt – leaving off one row of stitching as my design is smaller than hers. Completed quilt is approximately 32″x40″.

Supplies: Moda fabrics – Sunnyside by Kate Spain (blue floral); Robert Kaufman fabrics – Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander (leaf pattern); white cotton fabric from my stash; yellow dragonfly print for binding; Coats & Clark threads.

    Sarah this is just gorgeous! I made a quilt for my little C a few years ago and it is one of her most prized items. Love watching her snuggle in it. Your daughter is going to cherish this forever!

      Thank you! I'm excited about it. My son still loves some baby blankets I made for him (one knitted and one sewn) and even he has already "test cuddled" with this one telling me how soft it is. :) Thinking Baby Girl will love it too.

    Oh my goodness! This is just absolutely gorgeous. I love the fabrics you used. Thank you so much for the shout out! :)

      Of course! Thanks for sharing yours and the details so I could make this.

    Where is the dragon fly fabric from?

      I think I bought it at Joann Fabrics. It's been a while, but if this isn't the same fabric, it's pretty close:
