I'm teaching a beginner's patchwork class and so a class sample was needed. This is the baby quilt I made as a result. Two colourways of the same cute matroyshka print, one white background and one pink. I love this puss in the corner pattern, where pairs of the block 'kiss' each other on a diagonal. It was the very first quilt I made for a baby when I was around 12.
Sue B quilted this one in a big daisy pantograph that really suits
it, in a variegated thread I happened to have. The class quilts will get
quilted between classes 3 and 4, as this class is about patchwork not
I've already got another one cut out, that I will piece but not back and finish, so I can show the underside to the students as part of their learning process. It is in aquas, browns and lime greens. Such pretty colours - bright and cheery but not garishly so. I'm not a pastels fan and I don't think they suit babies anyway! More on that one later :)
