Kitty Quilt

Our lovely neighbours have a lovely kitten called Munchkin and we (more my husband) look after her from time-to-time. I said to her owner (Charlotte) that I would make her a kitty quilt at some point. Did Munchkin really need a quilt? No. Was I going to make one anyway? Of Course!

For this quilt I actually used some pre-cut squares I found in a Julian House charity shop. I bought 3 little bags of these squares but only really used one of them for this quilt. The dimple fleece backing was from a Hobbycraft fat quarter bundle.

This was the first time I had worked with smaller fabric pieces, I really enjoyed it actually. When stitched together I thought it looked very much like a Kaffe Fassett quilt due to the stunning mix of colours.

I was very happy with the final quilt, however I think next time I might but a thin layer of wading in between as I  felt it could of been a little ticker.

And finally, here is the lovely little Munckin enjoying her little quilt. I’ve been told that its been great for the chilly evenings 🙂

Marvel quilt

This is a lovely little quilt I made for little Theodore’s first birthday.

I had previously bought a Marvel Comics III Charm Pack by Camelot Fabrics when out with my nan, so thought this would be a good enough opportunity to use it.

I also wanted to give it a bit of a personal touch. Now when creating this I didn’t have access to the dry cleaners whom also do embroidery. So… I gave it a go by hand! Now, I didn’t think it was too bad for my first attempt, but I must admit in future I think I might leave it to the industrial machines.

Fairy tale dragons quilt

This time last year a friend asked if I could make a cot quilt for her son. Yes it really has taken me nearly a year to make it happen. To be fair I was still working on the whole ‘being a mum’ thing at the time.

Once my friend had decided on the theme (dragons) I started researching fabric asap! I discovered that Lewis and Irene had a Dragons collection and happened to find someone selling some fat quarter bundles of it on eBay.

After a few (quite a few) months and with the return of my creative spark, I managed to pull it all together. Even having some fabric to spare so I could make some cushion cover panels. My friend will be finishing them off.

Apologies for the poor photographs, it was a very cloudy day when I took them and I really wanted to get this in the post to my friend.
