Baby Quilt




I have wanted to do some quilting for a long time, so recently I got myself together and made this little quilt as a cot quilt for a friend who has just been blessed by having a baby girl.

This crafty activity made me realise just how important accuracy in measuring, cutting and sewing is when making a quilt.  It certainly was a learning curve but very enjoyable too !





I have kept it simple with just squares quilted on the diagonal.  The back is plain pink cotton and all was sewn by machine.

I have more in mind and have already bought some striped cottons in readiness.
