Well at long last the farm quilt is all done and dusted- I took advantage of still having the elephant and the Russian doll quilts to take a few photos of them all together. It was a bit windy though and Solomon was quite concerned!
I think I have a bit of a red theme going on- promise Sol’s coat was not picked out deliberately! I suppose it is such a warm, gender-neutral colour and even though I knew the doll quilt was for a girl and the farm one for a boy, I do like to avoid pastel blues and pinks where possible.
Despite my best efforts, I just could not get the seams of the back panels to align with the front patches in two locations- luckily I think the patterns are all colourful and busy enough to not jar too much. The backing fabric just migrated a bit with quilting, and is why I suppose backing fabric should really just be the one pattern… which wasn’t really an option here, due to the cost of the labrador fabric.
I do think it makes for a more interesting reverse side than normal though!
I was happy with the heart quilting pattern which is fast becoming a bit of a trademark, and the embroidered name heart in the top left corner. I’ve been using the font from my logo which I still really love.
Here are the three quilts in the new (to us, it came from a local furniture charity shop for £5!) bedside table, currently in use as a hall table:
And on the chair:
After all the photography Sol was keen to get going on his walk, so just two photos of the woodland elf (who later had a full blown tantrum about not wanting to go home and threw himself into a rhododendron):
So there we go. Another quilt in the post tomorrow (if I can find my tissue paper and print out a care information sheet, but to be honest a chocolate pudding is rather calling my name). On to advent calendars now!
