These are beautiful baby quilts that I have made to sell in my Etsy shop! They are the perfect snuggly quilt for popping in the stroller on a crisp Autumn walk.
They are so sweet and playful, I really enjoyed creating colour themes and placing them out before sewing them up. I paper pieced them on my machine, which is a funny combination of traditional and modern technique.
Casper likes them, but I am putting them all up for sale. I will have to make him a special one.
I bought this fabric in the quilting section in Spotlight, which is where I go first when I am looking for beautiful patterned cottons. It reminds me of Scandanavian design from the 60s.
I wanted a long skirt, because as I get older (and wiser) my preference for longer hemlines has taken over. Although I have always loved long hemlines, I have been guilty in the past of "rolling" the waistband of my school skirt from years 7 to 10!
The cotton tends to crease a lot, although that's not a bad thing necessarily. In fact, it sort of accentuates the print.
