Getting Quilty


It's not very often that I take on a challenge of making a quilt..... but little bubba Lucas who turned one on the weekend, has a very lovely auntie who asked me to make one for him.


The request was for something bright and colourful so it can be used as a pram quilt or a playmat. Luckily, bright and colourful just so happens to be right up my alley.

I had a few prints from the Michael Miller Bot-Camp range in the stash which I absolutely adore. I added in the various polkadots to add some more pop!


Keeping with the space theme, I added some stars as a backing fabric.....

Happy Birthday little Lucas!

I'm sat staring at how you've placed those squares! I've never attempted anything like that - love it!!

Emjie said...

That is wonderful work. The squares you used are simply perfect. Lil Lucas is going to love it, even when he is much older.

Michelle said...

Oh Cam! It's gorgeous! I'm sure the little tacker will love it - who wouldn't??

Gosh Cam - that's wonderfully bright and cheerful. Perfect for a little guy. Well done!

That starry one is a Spotlight number isn't it? I bought seven versions for my wonky star quilt.

Oooooh how spooky! I am currenting hand sewing the binding onto a quilt for a little boy who will be one this week! Great minds think alike and all that. I love the colours you have chosen.

Caroline said...

Great quilt Cam, I love the fabrics, so bright and not overly blue. Great work.

Stomper Girl said...

That quilt is just lovely and gladdens my heart because so many people try to make things boring and bland for little boys and why shouldn't they have riotous colour in their lives, hmm?

Cass said...

Looks great Cam

Miss Muggins said...

Brilliant. Meets the design brief to a T!

Andrea said...
