Quilt in a Day: Wholecloth Baby Quilt

Hello friends!

I had another post planned today to let you all know what I’ve been up to this month, including a fun trip to with the hubs to California. But, since I actually finished a quilt, I’ll share that instead!

Wholecloth Baby Quilt

I was in a hurry to finish a commissioned baby quilt, and decided to make my first (almost) wholecloth quilt! A wholecloth quilt is one with no patchwork, but just two solid pieces of fabric sandwiched together, quilted and bound. I’m always loving the yellow-and-gray color combo, so I jumped at the chance to make a baby quilt in those colors.

For the back, I chose this Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets print. I really ended up preferring the back to the front, so let’s just call this the front!

The other side is made from just four strips of fabric, so that’s why it’s almost a wholecloth quilt. The yellow print is by Jennifer Paganelli from the older Poodle line and the elephants print is by Ed Emberley for Cloud 9.

Here’s a close-up shot of those elephants. I knew right away that the binding had to be Flea Market Fancy seeds… one of my favorites!

Have you ever made a wholecloth quilt (or almost)?
