My friend is due to have her baby next week. I really wanted to make her something for the arrival of the new baby but due to lack of time and also no experience making a “real” quilt, this is what I came up with. It is inspired by TangerineSamurai’s beautiful creation (http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/charm-square-baby-quilt-ii)but with many many shortcuts.
I wanted to keep it gender neutral and have an organic feel to the colours. After sewing together the cotton side, it’s simply attached to a lovely fleecy back. No binding, no quilting. Measures about 150×100cm.
