Quilts for little people

Kia-ora to whoever is reading, Fudge and I have been busy quilt making.

I had been given some fabric off cuts , all these lovely pieces begging to be made into a quilt for a little person. Naturally this meant a trip to the local quilt shop –some yummy stripes caught my eye and I was then all set to go. Lots of pieces, lots of  measuring, trimming, sewing, pressing and the quilt was finished.DSC01193

The blocks left over were used for the backing of this wee quilt for a little person




In all the years I have been quilting possibly around 15 or so I have never made a Eye Spy Quilt and now was the time.

Small problem. I did not have the fabrics needed. Being quilters we help each other out with swapping fabric –I helped out a couple of friends and they helped me out with the Eye Spy fabrics. Many thanks you two, you know who you are.

I did have the fabric for the corner blocks and away we went again, Fudge and I. Lots of cutting and stitching and pressing and measuring and more sewing and the Eye Spy quilt took shape.


Among the fabrics given me was the  delightful fabric I used on the backing. I am sure a little person will have much fun Eye Spying this quilt


Of course there were blocks left over and I felt a big pillow case would be great –to help the little person sit up or ---


The backing of the pillow case is the same as the edge’s on the front.

Thanks for looking at my stitching –more to come.
