Well… as promised I am giving you an update on my first attempt at quilting.
Firstly I decided to make a small car seat sized quilt – my idea was start small to see if I can do it and the answer was I can! Yay for me! I made the first one using dinosaur print fabrics which I brought as a fat quarter set from Hobbycraft. This was the ideal starter as I got a mix of 6 fabrics for £7; perfect for a play about. I backed it in a navy fleece so it will be warm and cosy for little ones on journeys.
I am now working on another quilt; this one is for a gift. For this one I brought 4 metres of different cotton fabrics from my local haberdashery. This is more of a space theme and I am in love with some of these fabrics. Quilt numero two will be slightly bigger; more cot sized, but will once again be backed with a fleece for warmth. I think for this I will go for a grey fleece but comments are welcome (I intend on buying this tomorrow).
I am loving making these and am hoping to make lots more. I may even try making a “memory” quilt out of old clothing.
Watch this space…
