Anna in the studio has made this dreamy cot quilt from the Garden of Dreams Collection. It’s for baby Fen – the most adorable baby I’ve seen in a long time. Fen loves the quilt and plays and rolls around on it in the daytime and snuggles underneath at night.
The Garden of Dreams collection is perfect for quilt making and perfect for cot quilts too. The combination of small florals and bold designs make it bright and sensory to capture the attention of little people.
Dreamy cot quilt fabrics used:
Anna has used a selection of the Garden of Dreams fabrics for the front of the quilt and it is backed in Flowers A
Fabrics for the front: Meadow Sweet B, Dancing Kites B, Fluttering B, Garden Trail B, Meadow Sweet A, Elodie Bea A, Strawberry Feast A and Summer Blooms A (the bright yellow currently out of stock but will be back in soon)
This beautiful collection is based around the poems in Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘A Child’s Garden of Versus’ and was designed specially for childrenswear. There are gorgeous flowers and patterns that capture your childhood memories in Liberty designs. As it was designed for childrenswear it is absolutely perfect for a baby quilt.
The front is based on squares and there are 48 in total on the front of the quilt (6 squares by 8 squares)
It’s bound and backed in Flowers A which is really vibrant and fun. This is matched in the front of the quilt pattern by bringing contrasting fabrics in with this.
I hope you have been inspired to make something wonderful from the Garden of Dreams collection – whether it’s a cot quilt or something inspired by one of these beautiful prints.
The finished quilt is really lovely and am sure will make baby Fen very happy for years to come. A quilt like this makes an heirloom for years to come and knowing that it’s made from Liberty fabric is a wonderful thing.
