Quilty Pleasure…

I seem to have taken a million photos for one post again! I’m so visual. I know. So I’ll keep the chitchat to a minimum and we’ll get straight down to it.
I had a load of scrap fabric. I know a 5 year old that really really wanted a quilt set for her wrecked old pram that she loves. Perfect!

Cut your fabric into squares and lay it out in the pattern you want.

Start sewing the horizontal sides together. Make sure you iron all the seams like this:

I did no measuring for this so that’s why it’s a bit wonky! But that’s ok. Adds character no? ; )

Once you have all of the panels sewn together and the seams ironed you can sew on a large rectangle of fabric onto the back. Do this with the right side of the fabric facing each other then turn it inside out and iron again.

I also made a little pillow. The exact same way as I made the quilt but I added a bit of ruching.

Ruching is so 1980’s. I had it done before I even realised. I think subconsciously I was making the quilt set I dreamt of as a child. That’s a whole other post though!

They do look so cute together.

I didn’t put any padding into this quilt. So there’s no warmth in it but sure she can layer it over another blanket. And I was assured that rabbits don’t feel the cold that much in Summer. I’m planning a Winter set already!
