Latest bit of craftiness.

16 comments


As you know both my girls are getting married and Victoria’s future mum in law asked me to make her a quilt for her KS bed.

Well 3 months ago I started it and it is now done. I just hope she likes it as her son helped chose the fabrics.

It is 84″×84″ and is bound in a pale grey fabric which matches the back.

That's a prizewinner if ever I saw one! they just get better and better!

I do make them for other people, just the cost of the fabrics etc. Never charge for time as people just wouldn't pay it. This one comes in at £160 of fabrics and wadding.

A decent lap quilt is about £60, single bed £90, double £130 and a king like this one £160. Most of the quality fabrics are about £13-15 / m

The quilt you have made is stunning and the lady you have made it for will be thrilled with it. It must give you a huge amount of pleasure to be able to do it - well done you!

Thank you for all your kind words. I do enjoy planning the designs for the any quilt I make.

Wow, it’s wonderful. I always enjoy looking at the quilting exhibitions that are sometimes a part of flower shows. Yours would certainly merit a prize, great colour scheme & pattern.
