Fabrics Used in this Modern Baby Quilt

This modern flying geese quilt pattern was made using fabrics I had in my stash. They are all quilting cottons and I believe they’re PBS Solids but it’s hard to know for sure since I’ve had some of them for a while.

I had a fun time playing with color theory with fabrics for this one, and actually found the color palette on Pinterest a while ago. If you have a hard time picking colors for a quilt, I suggest searching for color palettes on Pinterest and saving the ones you like for inspiration!

The backing is Shannon Fabrics Cuddle 3 in Papaya and is SOOOO cozy!

Quilt Batting and Basting Details

This modern geometric baby quilt was backed with Shannon Fabrics Cuddle. I often get asked what kind of batting I use with minky or if I even use quilt batting at all! I do prefer to use batting, but a thin lightweight batting is perfect (especially because I live in a warm climate!) My quilt batting of choice is Quilter’s Dream Orient batting which is a bamboo blend and has amazing drape. You can learn more about different types of quilt batting in this article.

Backing a quilt with minky fabric can have really amazing results but it can also be a bit more tricky than backing a quilt with normal woven cotton fabric. You can see all my tips and techniques about backing a quilt with minky over on this post. The most important tip I have is to use spray adhesive to baste the quilt. I love spray basting because it keeps the fabric from sliding, stretching and creating puckers while you are stitching the quilting.

Quilting this Modern Geometric Quilt

One of my go-to quilting designs is channel quilting in straight lines. Straight line quilting is simple, easy, and therapeutic too! I prefer quilting straight lines on most of my quilts because I think it really lets the quilt pattern design shine through!

When I quilt with straight lines, I always use a walking foot and mark the lines before sewing the stitches. I also like to use a nice cotton thread in a neutral color like Connecting Threads 50 wt in colors such as cream, parchment, silver, or white.

Quilt Binding with Minky Backing

If you choose to back your quilt with minky, you’re in for a treat! Get ready for the coziest quilt ever! BUT also be aware that the minky fabric adds a bit of extra thickness. Let’s discuss how that extra thickness might impact your quilt binding.

Binding a quilt is already one of the more tricky steps of making a quilt. In fact, I have a 3-part blog series (complete with videos too) alll about quilt binding because it can be a bit of a sewing challenge!

If you are binding your quilt after backing it with minky, you’ll just want to keep in mind to make sure the binding folds all the way over the edge of the quilt. I find 2.5″ wide binding is perfect and I do prefer binding on machine when the quilt is backed with cuddle fabric.
