It’s done. Finally. Poor middle child now has a mummy made quilt.


When I started thinking about a quilt for Chappy way back in the dark ages, I thought about the things he liked.  Knowing his obsession with soccer he’d probably have loved this. Not sure it would go with my decor. Actually I know it wouldn’t. Anyhow he also loves orange (not really a colour that features in our house), camping, animals and being outside. So the fabrics I chose reflect all those things and have a bit of subtle orange thrown in too.


I can’t take the credit for the quilting. It just wasn’t in me. It would still be sitting in the cupboard if it wasn’t for the man with the long arm machine.


I used the Hopscotch pattern by Olive Tree Textiles which I’ve made a couple of times before. It requires 20 fat quarters and the top is pretty fast to make.


He loves it. Hoo-freaking-ray!

  3. It’s lovely, and I am in awe of the quilters who can sew those perfectly symmetrical curves without painstakingly marking it all out with a pencil first. Worth outsourcing!
