Latest Reveal

The latest issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting is out so I can reveal another quilt to you. I was asked to make a fun quilt suitable for children. This is what I can up with.


It involved lots of strip piecing, some bright pops of colour, and lots and lots of low volume. It is quite an easy quilt to make and changing the fabric choices would totally make this different. I kind of kept picturing making it like there were bulls-eyes on the quilt. Or you could add more colour and have bright hexies across the whole layout.

Surprisingly, one of the most enjoyable parts of making this quilt was doing the quilting. You won't often hear me say that!


I did a pretty tight stipple all over, except on the coloured hexies. I like the way leaving them unquilted helped them pop. Add on a scrappy binding and this quilt is totally my style.

Now I just need a child to give it to.
