Dawn has made this sweet and Beautiful Baby Quilt using a really lovely combination of colours of Theo. This makes such a lovely and personal gift for a newborn.
Who did you make this gorgeous quilt for?
“I made the quilt for my nephew’s baby (on my husband’s side of the family). My husband and I have recently become Great Uncle and Great Aunt to baby Sophia. She was born 2 months premature so rather caught me on the hop with my quilt making!”
What inspired your fabric choice?
“As she was unexpected early I decided to try and use fabric from my existing stash – and had this sweet Theo in a variety of colour ways. I only had fairly small pieces so a 5″ square patchwork was the order of the day!”
Was it an easy make and did you use a pattern?
“It was an easy make and no pattern was required. I wanted to make it using machine sewing to make it as robust as possible for the washing machine – as I felt it might be in the laundry quite a lot with a new baby!”
What wadding do you like to use?
“I used a synthetic wadding as I find this works really well with the fine Tana Lawn – giving it a nice puffy feel. It also dries quickly – see th laundry note above! 😂”
Thank you Dawn for sharing your Beautiful Baby Quilt with us. I’m sure it will be well used (and washed..) over the years.
