Baby Girl Quilt

For a friend who's baby is a couple of months old now.


I used mostly 4 1/2 in squares left over from all the other simple squares baby quilts I've done cut in half. It's nice to see fabrics from all the other quilts in there, and from the very first quilt I ever made!


It's been difficult to get photos with all this unseasonal rain we've had in Perth. Not that I'm complaining mind you, I don't need the summer heat at 8 months baked.


My plan for our time in Perth was making the most of the summer and hitting the beach, but really, I can hardly be bothered leaving the house. At Grandma's with the tiled floor is the best place for us at the moment anyway since we've started efforts at toilet training this week.


I dived in to my vintage sheet stash for the first time for the backing,


and used a pink polka dot for the binding which I also used on the front to make the quilt more oblong that square. I didn't use a pattern (hence the quilt originally turing out quite sqaure) but winged it with my scraps, and a natural coloured cotton.

Now I need to get on to my plans for Christmas presents. I hope your on track with your Christmas crafting!



  1. Madge, Love the quilt it really is beautiful!!! Hope you are enjoying your time at your mums- if you want to catch up we would love to see you! Otherwise looking forward to hearing about your exciting news soon!! take care Mel.

  2. Gorgeous quilt! And I love the pink binding. x

  3. That is gorgeous! I love the cute spotty binding and the little bits of lots of fabrics. I've got a friend who's having twins and I thought I might have a go at making a couple of cot quilts (my first). I think I'll stick to a much easier and less fiddly design though or I'll never get it finished and be put off quilting forever!
