This quilt is so BOY! I'm really loving this blue castle print. (Castle Peeps by Lizzie House) It was my original inspiration for this quilt. I pulled it out of my stash and decided to make something with it. I was initially going to use only blues and yellows, but couldn't resist adding some red.
Another thing that I've learned when choosing fabrics for a quilt. You can never have too many solids. When you think you have the right balance, then add just a few more solids! Of course this is only my opinion, but I think it just makes for a less cluttered look and helps the prints you use to really shine. And it's cheaper too!
Here's the back. I don't do a lot of pieced backs on baby quilts, simply because they're so small, it often seems full and busy. But this quilt just needed a few castles on the back, and I had only fat quarters of these prints, so I added some in here.
A few cheeky monkeys (Boys Will Be Boys by David Walker) and some yellow reproduction print duckies, to add some fun and whimsy.
Here's my latest stack, but we'll see if anything comes of it.
