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 !#%$)
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.
Michael’s quilt 40″ x 40″ September 2014
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.
