A quilt with some flowers:
A quilt with some princesses:
A quilt with some dancing frogs:
Okay, I know the dancing frog thing might not quite fit the theme there, but they are sweet little princes-turned-frogs. Seriously, look at that one with his leg stuck out in a jaunty fashion just ready to dance. Could you resist?!
Put it altogether and you have this!
I used another pattern from the Living Large 2 book – couldn’t resist those appliqued flowers.
Though I added in solid strips instead of prints for the rectangular strips. Well second go around. First go I used the mixed prints.And got this:
Which I not so affectionately named the Pastel Vomit Quilt. It makes me queasy just looking at it. Too many pastel prints blending together. Ick. I checked with Mum (who bought the fabric and is actually the one giving this quilt as a gift, I just had the fun of making it!) and she agreed. So we came up with the solid strip plan.
So a fair bit of unpicking and resewing and I was much happier. Much less vomitous.
Although of course, being a newborn baby, the recipient might sick on it on the odd occasion. Good thing it’s washable hey?
Love baby quilts, so quick and easy to put together. Oh and I cheated and did the pillowcase fliparoo with this one, no binding or quilting. But it’s nice and soft and cuddly. Perfect for the new arrival. Have already handed this one over to the grandies to deliver when they go to meet the little one. My job here is done.
