The Triangle quilt

This is a quilt for a wee baby that isn't quite born yet.
His mummy commissioned it, having seen some wallpaper that inspired her.

I rummaged about in my stash and found these fabrics
and sewed it together. I absolutely love how it turned out.

I think it is the first time I've made a quilt just using solids
and it has turned out just like we hoped.

I was getting a bit tired at the end of the term,
so I asked Shenleigh to quilt it just to make sure a good job was done
and the little animals look so good on it.

Usually I feel very anxious making things for other people
but this project came together smoothly
and it looks so lovely I will be gobsmacked if the new owner doesn't like it!

Which is a win win really isn't it.

I've made so much stuff this year. I'm thinking about writing a couple of posts
just to remember what I did. Would anybody mind, or would it be ugly bragging??
I just want to keep track and this seems like a good place!!


  1. It's gorgeous! Such a happy quilt. Love the quilted animals.

  2. Such a happy happy quilt that will grow with the baby for a long time to come
    Love the playhouse too

  4. you have a right to brag. Go ahead, I would love to see all your stuff in one post. I love this. I am seriously into solid colour at the moment. The quilt I made for Jakob in solid colours using mens shirts is still my favourite.

  7. I LOVE seeing what you are up to, post away! I am in love with this quilt and I was even more blown away once I saw those animals quilted in! Very lucky baby!

  8. it is gorgeous! I love how solids can show off patterns and other colours in other fabric. I'm sure Melissa is blown away with it! and go on - show us what you've made! You could even link up ;) your makings are always beautiful x

  13. I think this is the coolest quilt I've ever seen. I think I've said that about on of your quilts before, so I pretty much just love all of them. I want a single bed sized version of this for Mol! The colours! The animals!!

  14. What a stunning quilt - I love it! It almost makes me what to give quilting a go . . . don't suppose you'd be keen to do that sort of a quilt as a class at Make Cafe?

  15. What a stunning quilt - I love it! It almost makes me what to give quilting a go . . . don't suppose you'd be keen to do that sort of a quilt as a class at Make Cafe?

  16. Reminds me a bit of the new stained glass window in the "Transitional Cathedral" - hope and restoration and new life. Good work.
