Pram/Newborn Quilt

My patchwork sampler grew into something a bit bigger .. but I decided to stop at a Pram/Newborn Quilt. Here is what I have done so far. I hung it up on my window, so you can see that I still have some pressing to do on the seams before I do stippling.


Andreas and I argued about the colours of the sashing. He said it should be more black .. I wanted to keep it a girly pink. So the pink bats it was. My only annoyance is that in one corner there was pink gingham, so we have pink on pink ..



I am thinking of doing the back a black and white gingham (I love gingham) and then a black and white striped bias. What do you think?

I really like it Margaret. The strong colours are fab together. The gingham backing and stripey binding will finish it off perfectly.

I hate it when that happens (same fabric in the corner) I love scrappy but I also like it to be balanced. The only thing that I dislike about gingham is getting it straight, I really dislike wonky lines. good luck with your quilt though!

Y'know, you could make the pink corner a bit of a one off feature by appliquing something into that pink square....
