Well yes! I finally dived into the Cotton & Steel pool and, yes! it felt goood. If you haven’t yet purchased at least one fat quarter from this company please do it now. Even if you don’t like modern fabrics. Even if you will never use it. It is different. The colors are truly blinding. I can’t say anything more, I’m overwhelmed.
Now the navy solid cotton blended in perfectly with these specific C&S colors and I believe it makes the baby quilt far more interesting.

Oh my! the back…I am in love with the back of this quilt. I totally improvised the back, and resisted in calculating anything (!), and it was a miracle for me. (I am a total control-freak). I am definitely getting out of my comfort zone this year, and try some improvisational quilting. Any book suggestions?
I quilted the quilt by using the stitch-in-the-ditch and it looks a bit puffier than others. I like it more like that, because all the fabrics stand out more.
Thank you for reading, have a nice weekend, and don’t forget to stop by my Instagram account @zarkadia to keep track on what I’m doing and maybe say hi once in a while!

The navy really sets off the blocks but doesn’t have the look of sashing, which I like very much. I bought a fat eighth bundle of C&S – their first line – and still have several pieces of it in my stash. I found it difficult to fit into a quilt, but it made great zipper pouches. 🙂 I think their more recent lines are easier because they have more blenders. I do love the colors, and some sweet baby will love your quilt! Thanks for sharing this on Main Crush Monday!
Thank you Beth! The nay is part of the actual block, it is not sashing in reality. You’ve got a great Linkup there. It was my first time but I am going to be a regular. Thank you for your visit.
