One of my very favourite scrappy quilts is this one from Rita of Red Pepper Quilts, so I thought I’d make a baby-sized Blanket of Love version to try it out for myself.
Mine’s only 20 inches square, for a very tiny baby. When Di C saw it last month she was taken with the design too, but being a very considered quilter who likes to choose her fabrics carefully Di wanted a less scrappy result.
Over the past 4 weeks she has turned these beautifully colour-co-ordinated scraps …
… into this fabulous 25 inch baby quilt!
I just love how crisp and fresh this quilt looks when worked with a carefully chosen palette, and I think I might be trying this out for myself soon.
The quilt-love’s spreading, and Gail has started on her pastel version now.
Amanda was spreading sunshine with this checkerboard baby quilt.
Sarah started her quilt in the morning and was ready to quilt it by the end of the day – and did just that when she went home!
