I started this a while back, and in a moment of "sewers block" I reached into to my project draw and pulled out a cot quilt I had started a while back and I decided to work on it for a few hours. It started off as an ambitious single bed quilt and then upon the news of another friend expecting, it became a cot quilt.
The orange and coloured gingham fabrics were second hand finds, the rest is brand new quilters cotton.
I stared off with the intention of doing coin stacks, but ended up just doing even pieces of fabric with my rotary cutter.
There is a rough design in there! I haven't decided on the backing fabric, but the edging is an orange and white stripe that I picked up at a quilters expo a while back. Hoping to get it finished in the next few weeks and then it will be off to it's new home with a new baby.
I really must find more time to do quilting, I love the creativity that is involved and the resulting product will hopefully be an heirloom.
