As you are probably all aware I had a brand new baby niece this July.
For her first Christmas I knew I wanted to make her a quilt, well another quilt. The first one I made her was started before she was born and not pink.
I had to make her a pink one, not just any old pink one but it had to be a pink Liberty one. This was really just an excuse for me to buy some Liberty fabric but I do think it was a good excuse.
As I wanted it be be a bit scrappy and my stash of Liberty fabric is a bit thin on the ground I decided the best way to go was to contact the wonderful Kim at Worn and Washed Fabrics and explain what I was after and she very kindly put me a bundle together.
It took me a few weeks of cutting and sewing but soon came together. It was my first time sewing with the lighter Liberty fabric and I was nervous at first it did feel a bit slippery to handle but all in all I'm pleased with how it ended up.
I bought a metre of Liberty for the back of the quilt from Fabrics Galore at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show and managed to hide it from Natalie.
I used all the bigger strips I had left for a scrappy binding and finished it a couple of weeks before Christmas.
Just as well as I had at that point to make another two quilts for presents for another older Niece and Nephew but more of then in another blog post.
