Baby boy plus quilt

This little baby quilt is all ready for some baby cuddles! baby boy 1

I settled for a simple crosshatch (like in the HST quilt). The hera marker did not show up well on the linen, so I just used a disappearing marker.

I used a Sulky 30 weight cotton variegated blue thread. The chunky thread was perfect for the look and feel of the linen. Loving all the textures of this quilt!

I love the backing on this one. Such a fun pop of color and design!

Especially how you catch little glimpses of the green when it's folded up or thrown somewhere :)

It was an end of the bolt cut, so a small strip of Parson Gray filled out the backing.

I used Hobbs 80/20 cotton poly batting. I love the extra oomph and loft this batting has! Definitely thick enough to hold its own with the heavier Essex Linen fabric.

Now it just needs some baby snuggles :)
