I used part of a charm pack of Dilly Dally by Me and My Sister Designs. I took out the ones that had black and pink since I don't like black for a baby quilt and I didn't know if it was going to be a boy or a girl. I added yellow, mauve and some of my own light blue fabrics. The turquoise was a neutral colour and I thought the whole quilt was nice and bright.
This is the back. I like my backs to be all one fabric because it is hand quilted. That way you don't have to quilt through seams. The batting is polyester and that's what gives it the loft.
Here's a close-up of the backing fabric - it is multi-coloured Paddington Bears. My daughter was pleased. I purposely looked for something that wouldn't show through on the white and this was a perfect choice. I wash all of my fabrics before I put it together but even though I didn't wash the charm pack, I still didn't wash the quilt when I was finished. I don't like the wrinkly look for a quilt that is brand new.
And here's little Luc on his quilt wearing what turned out to be a matching outfit which was a gift from a neighbour.
