Backyard Baby Help Please

I’m choosing a winner for my Fat Quarter Shop $50.00 shopping spree Saturday morning (March 3rd), so get your entries in now, enter HERE!

I need help deciding what to do with with Backyard Baby fabric. I’ve ordered 1/2 yard of most prints and a full yard of Birch Forest, Bug Jars in grey and Windy Day.  

My good friend and his sweet wife are having their second baby in June or July, they already know it’s a boy. We met while working at very busy and popular animal hospital together and he’s our vet now, taking excellent care of our menagerie.

I’ve considered a simple charm quilt or maybe larger framed squares to highlight the prints. I have lots of different shades of Kona grey and Kona white I can incorporate. I’m definitely going to use use the orange snake skin print for punches of colour here and there. I also have Joel Dewberry’s Herringbone in pond which might work nicely with this line.

What would you do with this fabric? Please send links to patterns, tutorials or images of your favorite quilts.

  1. Cute fabric – will make a great baby boy quilt. The bugs in jars is especially nice. I like the ant farm pattern too – think you should grab some more of that too – would be a great back. I can picture the baby learning to follow the path with his finger.

    • My son is almost 20 so I don’t have many occasions to purchase baby fabrics so this is a fun excuse! I think I’m going to use whatever fabrics are left over, for the back. Cute idea!

    • Thanks for the links Mary, I was thinking of something like that. I’d like to attempt matching the pattern so it isn’t broken but that takes up valuable fabric. We’ll see!

  2. Your fabric is so whimsical. Great for little boy. I think it would be really cute to do something like the “picnic play quilt” featured on today’s Fat Quarter Shop newsletter promoted as their “friday feature.”

    • That is a cute and easy pattern, I have a few ideas now but nothing concrete. Maybe I’ll have a better idea when I have the fabric in my hands and can see the scale of the print. Thanks for your idea!
