Baby quilt bliss

Maze & Vale quilt
I'm loving the simplicity and serene color palette of this one.

Maze & Vale quilt

My friend Ashley asked me to make a gender-neutral baby quilt for a friend, and she picked out the gorgeous hand-printed fabrics from Maze and Vale.

We added in some coordinating Kona solids: Butter, Mustard, Ice Frappe, Sage, and Ash. The quilting is simple too--just straight lines along the seams.

Ashley wanted a modern and simple design, and I wanted to maximize the hand-printed fabrics, so we decided on rectangles. I think they ended up measuring something weird like 4.5x13.25 (just so I could get as much as possible out of the fabrics).

I found this fun random dresser at work...you might see it pop up as a prop in future posts.

I thought I recognized a work back drop. I really like how this turned out - and damn you are fast at hand binding!!! Looks great Katie.

How many rows are in this quilt & what is the finished size? I absolutely love it & it looks straight forward enough I might attempt it as my first quilt!

Hey, Meghan! Your email address isn't linked to your profile, so I'm going to reply here. The quilt has 13 rows and 3 columns. I made each block 4.5x13.25, only because I was trying to make the most out of some odd size fabric. You could change the size to make any size blocks you'd like. This quilt finished at about 40x50, so it's a baby quilt. But if you'd like to make it larger, you could just add more blocks!

I love this one so much, Katie! Those Maze and Vale prints are awesome and you picked such great colors to complement them! Very cool, modern baby quilt. I bet you have a lot of fun props at work, too!

Hi Katie,
New reader here! Just wanted to say this quilt is absolutely beautiful. It is probably my favourite I have found on Pinterest to date! It's inspired me to try sewing my own. Have a great day!
