Churn dash for baby boy

I’ve been dying to try out this churn dash pattern from Camille for quite a while. It’s a smaller quilt, so it would also make a neat wall hanging! I used a fabric bundle from Fabricworm (btw, I love how they set up the bundles with the neatest prints and solids… love it!) and bought a dotted grey and white cotton from Michael Miller (I think?) for the backing.

One of the blocks in this quilt is made from fabric from a bundle I bought for another quilt, but it matched up so nicely I liked it better than what I had orgininally chosen for that block.

I straight-line quilted and was very bothered by it. I didn’t go along with the block lines because I needed to start in the middle. I think the overall look was very nice, but I’m fussy 🙂 And every time I looked at it, I saw mistakes where my hands wobbled and the lines weren’t perfect. But babies don’t care!

I bound it up with another dotty fabric and although I was worried that it would be too busy, I really liked how it turned out!
