Baby girl quilt!

Hi everyone!

Things have been a little slow around here for the last couple of weeks, we have all been sick with the flu but things are slowly coming back to normal again now.

Before I got sick I found out that one of my friends had her baby….but surprise, surprise!! She had a girl! They told her she was having a boy so this was very unexpected…I thought I might make something pretty for this new baby girl!


I keep a few panels in my stash for these sorts of occasions! I raided my stash for matching fabrics and this is what I started with.

Kates quilt

I got the top made and then had a break for a week while I was sick….And finally this is what I finished with!

I put a small border around the panel and then made simple blocks to put around the edges. I wanted to keep it fairly soft and pretty so I used a pale binding too.

Don’t quilts look lovely rolled up?!

Kates quilt back

I think the back looks just as pretty as the front!

Unfortunately I can’t give you many stats because I forgot to measure it, I didn’t use a pattern and the fabrics are a lot of different ranges and all from my stash!

It is 100% cotton though - fabric, wadding and thread! And a good size for a cot!
