Blogger's quilt festival



I love the idea of this...checking out a wide variety of lovely quilts on the web....so I thought it would be good to join the fun :)

This quilt evolved out of new found love of vintage chenille when I was pregnant with my third child in 2006.  I had a strong inkling that it was a girl.  I sewed the chenille squares (from Jodie of vintage ric rac) to some remnant English children's print that was in my cupboard.  There it sat...eventually it was finished ?early 2008 when some perfect Prints Charming backing was found at Fabric Remnant Warehouse.  My mum quilted it and it now lives happily with my nearly 4 year old




It is a bright sight on a dull rainy day!
