Me and my big mouth! My lil sister was asked to be a godmummy to one of her very good friends, she wanted to get the little man something special so ordered a quilt off the internet. When it came she was hugely disappointed, whilst the craftmanship was good the colours barely went together yet alone were suitable for a baby (she had ordered a personalised baby quilt).
Anyway, she asked if I had anything (knitted) that she could use and my response was ‘I can make you a quilt’. I have never made a quilt before, ever. I perhaps did some quilting in school…..my mum makes quilts….but I have never made one.
With this in mind, I’m really rather impressed! Here’s some pics 🙂
It took me an entire weekend, however, I really enjoyed it! I think next time I will just be doing squares – not squares and rectangles! The fabric helped a lot, its a Riley Blake bundle of fat quarters from Emma’s Fabric Studio and was of exceptional quality! The backing was another Riley Blake fabric which sort of matched (the colours were slightly out).
Thankfully the recipient was very pleased with it! My sister was like ‘you should go into business’. NO! But thanks 😉
Thanks for visiting!
Lots of love
