This was a really quick little quilt, ordered by a colleague for her new granddaughter who is due to appear in October. She loved the Storyboek fabric which I’ve been hoarding and wanting to use for ages.
I’m not a huge fan of cheater fabric as it’s very rarely printed straight. This was no exception. You can just see my cute little QuokkaQuilts label in the corner.
I trapunto’d the main shapes on the panels, and free motioned around them in Aurifil 40 weight white cotton. I did some background hills in free motion, stopping it where I felt the horizon would be. I decided to stipple the borders and throw a few flowers/butterflies in too.
Really pleased with how this ended up looking and the lady who asked for it loved it too! I hope it brightens up the nursery and gives “scope for imagination” (as Anne of Green Gables would say, with a nod to my Canadian friends) and many happy stories!
