Simon's Quilt

Just a short and sweet post today to share photos of a little quilt I made late last year for a friend's baby, born at Christmas time.

Circumstances prevented me giving it to them until recently.

This was very much a practice piece for my free motion quilting on a domestic machine.

Someone commented that my feathers look like fluffy clouds

Quite appropriate, really, since the colours, to me, suggest sunshine , sea and sky.

I'm happy with that, and I think little Simon and his Mummy and Daddy might be too.


  1. Gorgeous! I see sailboats, with clouds above them, reflected in the water below.

  2. This is beautiful! Your quilting is fabulous!

  3. A gorgeous quilt Di. Your quilting is so effective!

  4. It's a charming quilt, Di, and for a "practice" of feathers, I'd say you've got that lesson ready for a recital! The colors you chose are soft-looking, and calming. I bet the bub and family loved your gift.


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
