Monochromatic Stripes

I've recently finished three more striped quilts to add to my little shop
 I was exploring the idea of monochromatic stripes, rather than gradient stripes.

Modern Striped Baby Quilts

 I'm pleased to say they turned out just as awesome as I'd hoped!  I'd pinned some striped rug pictures as inspiration in hopes that I could recreate them in quilt form.  I'm calling it a successful endeavor.

Black and White Striped Modern Baby Quilt

Obviously black and white was my original color scheme idea based on the rug picture.
 I am still obsessed with the IKEA briton numbers print for the back and will probably use it again 100 more times before I tire of it.  

 Charcoal Gray Modern Striped Baby Quilt

 Gray was my toned down version of black, but when I went to put the binding on, the gray fabric I had originally picked out just made the quilt seem really bland and boring.  So I went with the always fabulous woodgrain print (Color: Straw/Vintage Yellow) from Joel Dewberry.  I think the yellow makes a great statement on this little quilt.  Definitely not boring anymore.

Navy and White Striped Modern Baby Quilt

Navy and white have always been favorites of mine! 
 I wanted this quilt to have a classic yet modern feel to it.  The tiny striped binding (reminiscent of classic ticking) is my favorite part!  If you're a long time reader of my blog then you know of my love for ticking stripes.   The paper airplane print from Sarah Jane's line Children at Play, I feel, lends itself well to both the classic and modern sides of the quilt.

Happy Monday!

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday.

those striped quilts turned out really nice. I like the backs on each one--they are just perfect. M
