"Woodland" Geo Gems quilt

I recently offered to test a new "Geo Gems" quilt pattern for Emily Dennis as I knew that I had some colourful prints to use in the quilt.
These cute "Woodland" fabrics are by the Australian designer Kat Kalindi, and were just perfect for a baby quilt.
The Geo Gems pattern includes sizes for Crib, Throw and Queen sized quilts and I chose to make the Crib size which finished at 45" square.

The pattern called for 5 FQ as well as 9 solids so I chose a few coordinating solids to go with the prints.

The blocks were very easy to sew and are great for showing off printed fabrics.
For the quilting I used the serpentine stitch along the main seams which has left the quilt feeling nice and soft.
And the backing is a blue check which went well with the shades of blue on the front.
The Geo Gems pattern is now available at Emilys "Quilty Love" website.
This was on my FAL Q4 list for this year so linking up with the 2017 FAL team.
