An Adorable Little Baby Quilt
I am very excited! Expecting my second son in two month’s time, I couldn’t wait to get started on making some little baby things! First up is a little baby quilt, one that is small enough to transport around and put on the floor anywhere to put him down on.
The funnest thing about this project was choosing the fabric (who doesn’t like a good excuse to buy new fabric?!) and I ended up buying a bundle of fat quarters off Ebay, in a pale green theme. I also cheated with the bias binding, using some pre-made stuff that I bought ages ago in bulk. I chose some quite thick wadding for this quilt, thicker than any of the other quilts I have made, as I wanted it to be nice and soft even on hard floors.
I actually sewed all the patches together while on holiday in France, in a little secluded forest cabin, and then finished it off once I came home. I love how it has turned out, and have already cut up all my squares for another baby quilt, this one to go in the cot, which I will blog about soon!
