I just love how well the Lucent baby quilt came together! The Y-Seams pieced together nicely (there are 8 in the pattern to keep the printed fabric as single cuts), the colors blend together nicely, and the quilting was just an extra fun bonus!
Just like in my original Lucent quilt, I quilted around each pieced fabric and used a different quilting motif for each print.
The backing and binding for the quilt are the same: Kaffe Fassett, Shot Cottons, Wovens in Lavender. It is super soft and a fantastic backing for a baby quilt, I think.
I used 50wt Aurifil 2600 (Dove) for the quilting. Picking a purple or green thread would have been fun, but the Dove just melted into all the fabrics leaving a nice texture. For the binding, I used 50wt Aurifil 2520 (Violet) and it blended wonderfully with the lavender shot cotton.
In all, the quilt took me 7 hours to complete from start to finish. I hope it will be well loved in its forever home.
