Do you know what’s quick to make & oh so cozy? Baby Quilts!! And today I’m excited to share with you this floral baby quilt made using the Sprightly quilt pattern!
The Sprightly quilt pattern is a modern block-based pattern spin off of the Paradigm pattern. I released the Paradigm pattern earlier this year, and it’s a huge crowd pleaser! The Sprightly pattern features traditionally pieced quilt blocks that come together to make a more modern geometric design.
Quilting Cotton Fabrics for the Floral Baby Quilt
One thing I love about the baby size Sprightly quilt pattern is how easy it was for me to use fabrics that I already had in my stash! I used mostly mostly Cotton + Steel basics paired with a lovely Rifle Paper Co. Floral.
Additionally, I backed this baby size floral quilt with cozy Cuddle ® fabric in Lavendar by Shannon Fabrics. I share more about the backing fabric below.
Sprightly Quilt Block Components
The basis of each block within the Sprightly Quilt pattern are commonly used quilt block units. Particularly Flying Geese quilt blocks and an Economy Quilt block. As a quilt pattern designer, it is very important to me that any quilter has all the resources they need to succeed at any of my patterns. So, I have created step-by-step tutorials to teach the individual components of the Sprightly Quilt.
Quilting the Sprightly Baby Quilt
The backing fabric on this fun geometric baby quilt is Shannon Fabrics Cuddle®. Using Cuddle® fabric as the backing means it’s extra cozy and cuddly. I chose to quilt this floral baby quilt using my domestic sewing machine in a straight line design for simplicity.
