Lucia's Quilt

I love the fabrics in this little quilt. Red Riding Hood, the fox the birds, they make up some sweet prints. I have a soft spot for this fairy tale. I hope Lucia loves it. I now have one more baby quilt to do (for a little boy) and I am stopping for a while. I want to try some new techniques for myself and learn about sewing luxurious silks. Here are some photos of Lucia's Quilt.

 In line with my favoured kind of binding I used the scraps from the quilt. Never a problem matching the colours using this technique.

Second Quilt for the Dandelion Challenge : St Bats Retreat May 2014

I have now finished both my baby quilts for the St Bats Retreat Challenge. The second one focuses on a bunch of Kaffe Fassett blues. I love his clear bright pastels and I think these go especially well with white. I backed the quilt with a new cot sheet I got from somewhere. I used a pattern I have been wanting to try for some time so it's not original to me.
