I think I mentioned when I received this Briar Rose fabric by Heather Ross that I had Olivia helping me cut fat quarter bundles for the shop. She loved the fabric as much as I did and immediately wanted a quilt made, so I decided to make one for her 4th birthday.
I had purchased Kate Conlin Designs “Fussy Fairytales” quilt pattern a while ago and decided it was perfect for this fabric range. Each block was made from 2 fat quarters and I had a lot of fun deciding which prints went well together. The remainder of the fabrics were used in the floating squares in the border.
I hand quilted in the sashing and around the centre panel and also around each floating square using Perle cotton No. 8 in variagated pink.
The binding was made using leftover strips of Briar Rose which I machine stitched to the front then hand stitched to the back of the quilt.
I used the embroidery function on my sewing machine to make a personalised label. I have started to do this on all my quilts and hopefully this will last for years to come!
I took the quilt to the park this week to photograph as our backyard is in renovation mode. I wanted to get a picture of Olivia with her quilt but she was too busy climbing!
Thanks for reading along.
