Skip To My Lou Baby Quilt in Violet Craft Modern Classics!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Today I'm sharing a bright and happy rainbow Skip to My Lou in the Baby size!  

Precut Friendly Quilt Pattern

Skip to My Lou is a precut friendly quilt pattern - you can use charm packs or layer cake squares, or of course scraps from your stash would work just as easily.  Just cut the number of squares in the size indicated in the quilt pattern. 

After you've selected your print squares, choose two solid fabrics that set off the squares.  This quilt is made with Kona White as the background and Kona Charcoal as the accent fabric that creates the design.

Beautiful Rainbow Fabrics!

This quilt is made with a charm pack of Violet Craft Modern Classics, available right here.  Check out the modern subtle prints in white on the bright colors!  The colors are arranged in rainbow order as much as possible, placing the lighter gray prints from the collection in the middle of the quilts, with the  medium and dark grays and the black print placed in the four diagonal rows that branch out from the center, for a radiating effect.

A Peek at the Backing!

The backing in this quilt is a print I've been hoarding for a LONG time.  It's a flannel print of a leaf shape in a rainbow of colors.  Just so bright, fun, and happy, and perfect for the backing on a baby quilt!

Longarm Quilting

The longarm quilting is a meandering heart design in white thread, completed on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.  Such a sweet design for a sweet baby!

All the Quilt Sizes!

Skip to My Lou includes all of the quilt sizes - Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King - for true value for you.  You'll love this feature in my quilt patterns.  :)

Oh That Binding!

Ready to be chewed and spit upon, the double fold binding is a teal print from the Violet Craft Modern Classics fabric collection, available right here.  It will get a lot of use in the quilt, that's for sure.  I've attached it entirely by machine for a quick, sturdy finish.
