This is a quilt I made for my neighbour's granddaughter, Sophia. I had a bit of a disaster with it. In fact a huge disaster. I quilted it before I put the border on. I really couldn't believe I had done that (even my two quilt buddies never notice it) - huh friends! I was shown by the lovely Jill from The Patchwork Dog & Basket how to quilt as you go, but couldn't get it. So I had to unquilt it, put the borders on, put the backing on and then re-quilt it. Originally, I had put in some really heavy weight polyester wadding and when it was quilted it looked like a puffa jacket! I now believe that forgetting the borders was a sign from up above, because I ironed it to try and quilt as I went and the wadding melted !!!!!! I then went back to my usual wadding. It started to look a bit like a dishrag but it soon perked up!!! I also made a little angel out of the backing fabric to go with it. I I have made a few of these in my time too.
The fabric is from the Lily and Will collection. It took me a while to source it all as it was an old collection. Two of the fabrics I bought in Inverness! Most of it came from the Patchwork Dog and Basket.
I also knitted Sophia a gorgeous little dress and a loopy jacket with a hat. Can't find them on my computer so the pics are probably still on the camera!!!!
I do hope you like it.
Back to work tomorrow.......
Thanks for looking.
