Child’s Quilt


Complete 18th July 2009


This was an interesting learning process. I didn’t use a pattern (possibly not a sensible idea for ones first quilt), but I did consult various ‘net resources as well as the best quilter I know, Esther.

Things I’ve learnt for the next quilt:

  • cut and sew the pieces carefully so they match properly
  • sew straight lines when quilting, not around each piece
  • if you must do lazy binding, measure first!

Overall I am very happy with it though. It’s a quilt to throw on the floor,  so it doens’t need to be perfect!


The teddy is there to show scale.
