Rainbow double staircase baby quilt

Good morning!  Today I’m guest posting at A Girl in Paradise as part of her Building Blocks with friends series.  If you happened to wander over here from there, welcome to my space!  I’m new to this sewing blog thing, but I’ve made a few tutorials, and you can check out a sampling of my work under the Sewn by Moonlight tab.

I’m sharing the tutorial for the double staircase quilt block that I used to make this rainbow baby quilt.  To see the tutorial, head on over to A Girl in Paradise.

I am so very excited to share this quilt because I just love the way it turned out. I used the charms I received in the 5 Yard Color Wheel Charm Swap (well, some of them.   I have a lot left!).

I quilted in straight lines, following the pattern of the stair steps, above and below, as well as quilting within the white spaces in the border.

You can see the stair step quilting a bit better on the back of the quilt.

And speaking of the back of the quilt, I think I love it almost as much as I love the front.  It so colorful and happy that I can’t help but smile when I look at it.

I still need to bind the quilt.  I’m thinking red.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

    Definitely red, or maybe blue, depending on if you’re giving it to a boy or girl. =) Or depending on if YOU’RE having a boy or a girl. =) Colorful quilts are my absolute favorite!!
