Stripey Love

Ta Dah! It's another quilt finish - get me!!

This time it's a baby quilt for my friend's 5 month old baby boy, Ethan.

I decided to just pull from my stash and go with a riot of the blues and greens, toned down by some solids in grey, blue and green too.It's bound in a pale blue as again this helps to bring the colour palette together.

When I quilted this one I experimented by trying out some of the different stitches on my very basic machine (please Santa bring me a super duper new machine, I've been really good!). I like the very wrinkly effect it's given the quilt, it looks so inviting doesn't it? Perfect for a curious baby that's just starting to try and get on the move!

The quilt measures approx 40" x 40" and has a hand embroidered label on the back.

NB: Apologies for rubbish photo quality the light is poor round these parts and the weeks weather forecast doesn't hold much hope of it getting any better!


  1. What a great quilt! And a wonderful way to use up all those bits and pieces!

  2. Love it! Great inspiration for when I make my little boy's quilt for when he moves out of a cot and into a big bed! I'm thinking of lovely bright primary colours too. This looks great!

  3. Fab quilt Justine, love the stitching
