“Joyburst” Baby Quilt

This quilt was a gift for a friend of mine from work, upon the birth of her first baby. I’m so chuffed to see it in use inside the pram when she is out and about!

My chief inspiration was this quilt by Karen Griska. I loved the riotous colour in this quilt and the way the radiating stripes look a bit like crushed peppermint candy!

I quilted this with an all over spiral design, except on the sashing where I used some wonky parallel lines. I love the wonkiness of all the elements in this quilt! Even the “straight” lines that divide the quilted sections are wonky.

🖋️ I originally blogged about this quilt here.
