Looks like Quilting seems to be my new passion – I assure you, it’s not. It just seems that way.
This is a quick little quilt that I made for my friend’s baby shower. The trickiest part was deciding on colours as it seems most people don’t want to know the sex of their babies until they’re born. Come on people! It makes it harder for us buying/making presents! Ok, ok, I know if I was in that position myself I would be the same….
I wanted a clean, contemporary look to the quilt and knew in my head that I wanted just two colours. Then I ran out and didn’t buy enough, so I put the white sashing in as well.
The wadding is left over bamboo wadding from when I did my king size quilt. I love bamboo wadding, it’s so soft and tactile and it quilts up nicely too. I’d definitely recommend trying it if you haven’t tried it before.
The quilting’s pretty simple as I didn’t want anything overly fussy.
Finally, I put one of my labels in – which to be honest is something I stopped doing a while ago as I’m the only one that sees the clothes that I make. Anyone else find that they initially excitedly bought labels and then just stopped putting them in?
