august improv

Yes, another baby quilt!  This is the first of three I'm gifting this fall.
For this one I pushed myself and went improv which is completely outside my comfort zone.  I used this quilt by Ashley at Film in the Fridge as my inspiration.  I love everything Ashley makes.  

My blocks finish at 8 inches, like Ashley's, but since my quilt is baby sized I probably should have made them smaller so there would be more blocks.  Oh well, next time...

These prints are all from an original Cotton and Steel collection called August.  
I free-motion quilted this with randomly spaced somewhat straight lines.  I started going horizontal on the white background blocks and vertical on the print blocks.  I got a little bored with that so kinda changed it up in a few of the blocks - improv style!

The backing is double gauze - it's so cozy!
I used Quilter's Dream cotton Request loft batting so it's super light weight.  

The binding is from a newer Cotton and Steel collection.  I love this print and wish I had bought more of it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
