Turns out that, to my complete surprise, picking out my fabrics was super easy ! I normally struggle for days if not weeks to put the right fabrics together… but these came together seamlessly (get it? get it? seamlessly??).
My main fabric and the beginning of this quilt adventure is an organic cotton called Monsterz Mash Orange designed by Michèle Brummer-Everett for Cloud9 Fabrics. It is so sweet! I found it on Etsy at Selvage 123. Adorable, right? It was easy to jump off from there and pick various colours from that fabric, like orange, yellow, grey and blue.
For the back, I chose a grey dotted fabric, and inserted a few strips of patchwork to the bottom third of the quilt. The quilting was done with straight lines, and the binding is a solid blue-turquoise organic cotton. The quilt measures approximately 30 inches by 40 inches, so just perfect as a little floor mat or as a stroller blanket.
