Bohemian Baby and the Jitters

Another day, another baby quilt, another pattern by Suzy Quilts!

Holly Gets Quilty

My sweet friend Carly just had her first baby girl (after three boys!) and when I asked what style of baby quilt she wanted, she requested something with a Bohemian feel. I know that she loves pretty desert inspired prints too, so after raiding my stash I pulled out some of my very favorite fabrics and I bought the Triangle Jitters pattern from Suzy Quilts (you can find that HERE).

I’m so pleased with how this turned out! I tweaked the color layout just a bit by adding in that beautiful golden yellow as a fourth color and this quilt is ready for the Bohemian Desert baby girl!HollyGetsQuilty

The quilting is simple straight lines that follow the arrangement of the half square triangles, and it crinkled up beautifully in the wash.

It is a pretty, thick woven that reminds me a bit of a serape, but because the right side of the fabric had some blues that were to teal and bright, I flipped it over so that the “wrong” side is facing out. It is more muted with purples rather than blues, and it was perfect! I bought this at Joann’s a year or more ago and I haven’t seen any since sadly.

Fabric used in the quilt includes:

Tomahawk from the Arizona line by April Rhodes
