I bought this quilt as a kit from Primitive Patches, a gorgeous little quilt store not far from me. I'm not sure of the fabrics, I'm sorry. I was pregnant with my littlest one at the time. I was looking to make a unisex quilt but having already had two girls, I thought it was highly likely to have another.. This quilt caught my eye hanging in the shop and I knew I wanted to make it..........
(sorry for the photo quality)
After taking a good look at the fabric you can't mistake it for being a little 'girl centric'.....I think its just what I am used to and attracted to...........It comprises little hanky linen squares....
aren't the fabrics gorgeous?
I used a 'dick and Jane' type pattern for the back and decided to add the stripe border down the side.
I hand-quilted this one. (I love hand-quilting......)
These little pics are Too cute!! I think a fussy cut pillow with some of these cute pictures might be on the cards soon, I have a little left over.
So along came my BOY - Tommy......I only had the top completed when he arrived and with all that was going on with three kids and the thought that it was a little girly - this quilt didn't feature high on my priority. So when Tommy was six mths old I decided to finish it. It now resides on my 3yr old daughters bed. Despite being a cot-size quilt it fits quite nicely on her bed. She loves it - I think its Lily's now.....
Happy Stitching everyone.
