My beautiful baby turned one a few days ago and graduated into toddlerhood (excuse me while I shed a tear!). She had so many fabulous gifts from friends and family – toys, clothes, cakes – she is a very lucky and loved little girl. From me, she received a quilt to keep her warm in her pram this winter.
Made with a combination of ‘Itsy Bitsy’ fabric by Heather Ross for Kokka, Essex Linen by Kauffman and Kona Cotton fat quarters, it features appliqué sun, spider and rain cloud. It’s then hand quilted and embroidered with perle cotton, with ribbon ‘taggies’ machined into the edges (box stitched to tge backing for safety) and buttons for eyes.
It was an improvised design. I did consider writing it up but given the kokka fabric won’t be around much longer, I decided it would probably have limited appeal! Sibella seems to like it, though – it’s perfect for her current favourite game, peekaboo!
