My First Quilt

My little possum turns 2 next week and I couldn’t let that go by without making her something special. When she saw some Maisy fabric in Spotlight she was beside herself with excitement so I decided to make her a quilt.

I’ve kept it quite simple. It’s got a purple corduroy border and green corduroy back. For the inside I chose a beautifully soft 50/50 bamboo cotton mix. It was the first time I’ve had a chance to use my Janome walking foot and it made things so much easier. Frustratingly there were no instructions on how to attach it to the sewing machine but there’s some great photo instructions here.

To make it a bit more’quilty’ I choose a few squares to stitch around…

I’m so excited to give my daughter this quilt that it’s going to be hard to wait until next week!
