Gender neutral baby quilt

When I saw this gorgeous rabbit fabric, I knew it would make a lovely baby quilt.  It is sweet without being overly babyish.  The stylish choice for all modern babies.
 
I have used it to make a whole cloth quilt using the same tutorial from Brighton Sewing Centre that I used for a previous quilt.  The only change that I made was to cut the main fabric one inch larger on all sides to allow for shrinkage.

I chose the rabbits in a gender neutral aqua however it also comes in an equally pretty peach.  The backing is a gorgeous fluffy cloud fabric from the Storybook collection from Moda.  Perfect for sweet dreams.  
 
After auditioning lots of fabrics for the binding, I finally settled on this gold spot print which adds just the right amount of colour.  As before, I quilted in straight lines by eye whilst taking care to avoid the rabbits.

The final quilt is about 1 metre square and has been washed to give it that lovely antique look.  And as it is 100% cotton, it feels cuddly and soft.
 
If, like me, you have fallen in love with the bunny fabric I have used (part of the Dress Me For The Playground collection by Dear Stella), it is available from Fabric HQ.
