The Summer time always reminds me of camping and going to the Mountains. When designing this quilt pattern I was trying to echo a geometric design on both corners of the quilt. When I stood back and looked, this design looked like to mountain ranges with a canyon in between. This is where the name Cobalt Canyon Quilt came from.
I have been wanting to make beginner friendly quilt for awhile and this quilt is great for beginners! It is made up of squares and rectangles. So it goes together super quickly!
The pattern comes with directions for a Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen and King size quilt.
I remembered there was a super cute line of fabric called Hello Bear designed by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics. This line has been around for a while and I have always wanted to use it. I thought it would be perfect for a baby boy quilt. I bought my fabric at Stash Fabrics. They had all the ones I wanted!!
I decided to quilt this about 5/8 in from each mountain top seam.
For binding, I love using a dark color. So it frames the quilt. One of my favorites is navy…I may have used navy on too many quilts, but I love it! So I say use what you love.
And isn’t that backing fabric too cute!!!!
I hope you love this design as much as I do!! I would love to see your versions! Make sure to tag me in your photo or use the hashtag #HappyCloudCreations
