Cozy Winter Vintage Baby Quilt






 This is one of those quilts turned out exactly right.  So many quilts take a wrong turn somewhere, but of course I don't know it till it's too late, or sometimes I never quite know why I don't love them.  But this one, is just all my favorite things, even though it is nothing too exciting design-wise.

I used two widths of strips, 2.5", and 3.5".  I cut each piece into one of these widths, and then any varying length.  Such an easy quilt to put together, and looks so unpretentious and scrappy.

The fabrics are a large variety, with a lot of Denyse Schmidt mixed in of course.  I ordered a fat quarter bundle of her Winter Walk collection, and really love some of the prints.  It's a mystery to me why more online shops are not carrying her latest collections?  Or maybe I just don't know where to look... Is there less demand for her fabrics?  I find them to be perfect for vintage style that still has an up to date feel to it.

  1. A very sweet scrappy quilt! Love all the little pieces of DS fabric, and I agree, her fabrics really do add to that gentle vintage-style warmth.

  6. So pretty and comfy. I’m not sure why DS prints aren’t as advertised as they used to be either. It’s quite odd because I know lots love her work!

  8. Wonderful scrappy quilt. I love the colors and complexity, despite the simplicity of the pattern. And your labels remind me that I should really print some of my own (or order some).
