I made this baby quilt for my brother and sister in law who are expecting their first baby! A baby girl! They’ve been waiting a long time and we are so happy for them.
My sister-in-law loves warm colors and so I went a bit non-traditional with this quilt and matched it to the hues in their home. I used the Autumn Woods collection (Kate and Birdie for Moda) for the main fabric colors and some scrap ivory and orange polka dot fabric I had on hand.
My FAVORITE part of the process is pulling the fresh quilt out of the dryer. It goes in looking nice and comes out looking GREAT. Nice and crinkly. I love that! It also hides minor mistakes and areas where the fabric may have puckered a little bit, so I appreciate that crinkling!
It isn’t perfect, but I am happy with how it turned out and can already imagine baby Audrey having lots of tummy time on this quilt. I hope she loves it!

This blog post warms my heart! You put so much thought into this quilt, so even if it wasn’t already the most beautiful thing I have I ever seen, I would treasure it.

So sweet! I’m also a fan of the crinkle! I’m sure they’ll love that quilt so much.

I love this quilt! The fabrics are gorgeous. I am also a big fan of Moda fabrics.

Absolutely adorable! Love the fabric choices. Can you tell me where to find a pattern for this? Love the crinkle. As a newbie to quilting that could hide soo many mistakes LOL
Hi Christine! I didn’t use a pattern, I just sewed the squares together on an angle (to form diamonds). I’m new to quilting too and it wasn’t too hard to do! As you can see, some aren’t completely straight, but the crinkling does help! 🙂
Hi, I just love the white on this quilt. I’m also planning on making a quilt using the Autumn Woods collection but not sure what white to pair it with. Do you have info on the white fabric? This is a beautiful quilt by the way 🙂
Hi Mai, and thank you! I actually just used some white cotton broadcloth for the white squares. The cream with orange polka dots is a cotton calico from Joanns and the rest are the Autumn Woods collection. Hope that helps!
