Scraps of fabric can give more than a quilt

A Baby quilt is more then just a few scraps of fabric sewn together.  the design and thought processes which carefully place each strip of colour and pattern can make a difference from one quilt and another. This cot sized baby quilt was commissioned by a neighbour for her new born long awaited grandson.  The customer wanted something unusual that others would not provide for a baby that had everything.  The commissioned brief was just a quilt with his name on and the design was left up to me.

I used the @ModaFabrics #Jellyroll #BlueberryCrumbCake. a wonderful range of blues, browns and whites.  I chose the light colour range for this quilt and a simple log cabin style block.  Once the four large blocks were completed I twisted and turned them until this pattern emerged, then the borders added.

Once the patchwork was done, it was time for layering and quilting.  Here I had fun and chose a range of different stitch options on my #Janome 12000 machine.

This baby quilt was ordered with love, stiched with fun and happiness and  given for snuggles nd cuddles.

Its not very often I succumb to creating  quilt for order but this one was fun and the beautiful subtle tones of the fabric made it all coordinate beautifully,
