It seems like ages since I made a quilt. So I happily offered to make a baby quilt for my daughter's friend's new baby boy. I purchased these fabrics from A Day in the Country at the AQM.
I decided to combine them with white quilter's muslin. Did I have any in the stash? NO! So off to the shops for some of that and a bit of this - the animal print and orange fabrics. This is where you are allowed to have a really good laugh - I purchased 2.25 metres plus 14 Fat 1/4's to make, wait for it......a quilt measuring 22 x 28 inches. Do you think I might have a tad too much?
You'd think with all that fabric I'd have had no trouble deciding what to make. Originally, I did have an idea of sorts, it just that I decided to use the animal print in the top - not just on the back. When I should have been cutting and sewing I was still procrastinating about what to make. After lots of deliberation and some advice from Jan I decided to go with a strippy quilt. I'd planned to machine quilt it myself but it was all starting to get a bit tricky. The easy option was to have it professionally machine quilted. I guess the only thing that has gone to plan is its little!
