Another quilt post…this one I made for a little girl’s first birthday.
I was asked for similar colours that I used on Millie’s owl…green and a pop of bright pink – pretty but not too baby-ish so that it can keep on being used as little Emma gets older.
The quilt was a little bigger than a normal cot quilt as it’s aim was to fit a single bed. I was also told that, with Emma’s room being quite small, this and some matching bunting were going to provide the main colour to the room, which is a lovely idea.
The quilt did start out being just made up of squares but because I like to make things more complicated for myself…ahem…I mean more ‘creative’…I used a pinwheel style pattern (not sure if this is the official quilting term, I just think they look like pinwheels!). I alternated this with blocks of the bright pink spot to make it less fussy and more youthful.
I really liked how this turned out…it’s cool.
