Modern Quilt Pattern: Geometric

by Kate on March 7, 2011

I’m thrilled with how this one turned out. Beautifully crinkled, soft and relaxed, perfect for a little baby.

Which is a good thing as I am sending it to my cousin who is due in a few months, the same cousin who I made the grey cardi for. Ames did huge amounts of babysitting for us when we were local and it was very much appreciated.

Fast Facts

Fabrics: Liberty, Ink & Spindle, Linen, Prints Charming, Alexander Henry, Kona solids, Denyse Schmidt
Backing: Liberty
Binding: Lovely basic stripe, purchased here (comes in some great colours)
Size: 42″ square
Quilting: Freeform squares, inspired by these pieces from Rummage

Should you love this quilt as much as me, you can find the pattern here.

It’s beautiful! I love the colors, perfect for a sweet newborn but I also kinda want it in my own room :)

What a lovely colour combination! I’ve found myself using a lot of yellow in quilts etc for soon-to-appear baby number two, as it’s practically the only gender neutral baby colour I like (don’t yet know what we’re having). Love the LIberty backing – must be incredibly soft and yummy!

It’s perfect Kate!
Love the colours & can just imagine how soft it is with the Liberty backing. Another beauty x

The quilt turned out beautifully. It will look great with a little bundle wrapped in a grey cardi! :)

Absolutely beautiful, Kate. Even from here I can tell that it’s so soft and snuggly. Am sure it will be love for a very long time x
(ps – what’s the stripe binding??)

Kicking myself, I am. I’ll have to have another baby or something. When the youngest was tiny I was googling Youtube knitting videos. The quilty thing entirely escaped my attention. ‘Til now…GAH!

You are so good at putting colours together. And the whole backing made from Liberty… How luxurious!
P.S. See my blog for some thoughts on your work :-)

This is really lovely Kate, I love the pattern! I’m just about to embark on my second quilt ever, and I’m not set on the exact pattern so I’ll keep this one in mind! G x

21 karlyn March 8, 2011 at 7:07 pm

lovely Kate, the colours are divine, and I love your random quilting, going to try that next. Your machine stitched binding looks great too, why am I too scared to try this??

Your color choices just make this quilt POP! Great Job.

I love the photos I love the quilt, I love the color combination and I love the Liberty background (have a little piece of that one in my stash !!) — one of my friends came home for the afternoon yesterday, she makes quilts & other patchworks and i showed this to her : she was speechless ! — what a lucky baby indeed :)
