Quilts to use and love

Baby and Toddler Quilts

Children’s quilts are great ways to practise and learn.  I enjoyed making all these quilts, they are all my own designs –  with inspiration from others.

Three baby quilts, all about 1m x 1m (40″ x 40″), made from left-overs of a queen top (UFO !#%$)

Raindrops on Puddles 40″ x 48″ 2013

A modern quilt, inspired by A Quilt for Harry on Crafty Blossom blog.  An early effort of concentric circle quilting.  I was pleased with the effect though I found it very time consuming.  Spirals are a lot easier.

Stephanie’s Quilt 36″ x 48″ – June 2008

After making a baby quilt in pink and white for my great niece, I was inspired to create an original design with the left over pieces, and many more scraps.  I love the hand of Liberty Tana Lawn, though I am disappointed in how the seams show through.  It is the fineness of the lawn that feels so lovely, and it is this characteristic that reveals the seams. Oh well.
