Blogger's Quilt Festival: Baby Quilt Category

It's that time of year! Amy over at Amy's Creative Side is hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It's an opportunity for all us quilt bloggers to share up to two quilts we've made with the online community. A chance to oooohhh, ahhhhh and kvell over each other's fabulousness, if you will.

If this is your first time visiting Modern Balabusta, welcome! My name is Lisa and I live in downtown Toronto with my husband and 2 year old son and are expecting baby-girl-to-be in the next couple weeks. This blog chronicles my sewing and quilting adventures. I'm so grateful for the many  friends and connections I've made in the online quilting community through this blog, Flickr, Instagram and Twitter.
This is my third time participating in this festival and I'm entering my Bungle Jungle Stars quilt in the Baby Quilt Category. It isn't a fancy quilt. In fact, it took less than a week to put together, which is crazy fast for me. This quilt held a couple firsts for me. It was the first quilt I spray basted and the first time I quilted with fleece. You can read more about the making of this quilt here.
Despite the quilt's simplicity, I was totally thrilled with the finished result. It just reads BABY to me and it makes me happy to think of my cousin and her son snuggled under it.

  3. This quilt is so fresh and happy - I smile every time I see it. Perfect for a babe!

  4. I love how bright and happy this quilt is, Lisa!

  5. Hi! Your quilt is so beautiful! I love your happy colours and how you have mixed stars in it! My enter is also baby quilt with stars.

  6. What a wonderful, brightly coloured quilt, and I just love the idea of the fleece on the back, so snuggly and warm. Perfect!

  7. Awwwww...I love this quilt. The orange stars are perfect! I love how they break up the squares just a tiny bit =D

  8. And you made it in winter which is perfect time for cozy snuggling with a dash of sunshine. A warm quilt makes all the difference when the snow is flying outside.

  9. I love those yellow stars in amongst the blocks. The diagonal quilting is great too :) It's such a happy quilt!
