Once upon a time, a stitcher called Veronika started a quilt for her daugher. She jokes that it was 'years ago' but infact I think it was only last September. It took the best part of two terms to make, just 2 hours a week, and V spent quite alot of time just laying out the fabric and planning her creation. Don't we all just love to do that??
Well, here it is and what a quilt!! There were a few 'tweaks' along the way and we had to trim the edges before V bound it because some of the layers didn't match up. But what a quilt!!
And then there was another story, V has another child and she needed to make him a quilt just as lovely BUT QUICKER!!
So with a bit of searching and re-arranging of fabric, we came up with this simple plan of bands of print and some applique.
Sorry you have to crick your necks!!
Veronika was tempted occasionally to 'add' a few bits and I was guilty of suggesting different things, it's my job to inspire and suggest, but she kept her mind on the job and finished this one in 6 sessions. Not as complicated, but just as lovely.
The quilt is not quite finished yet, the binding still has to be hand stitched round, but Marco knows it is his already.
