Remember those Sphere charm packs I showed you on Sunday? Well, don't say I don't work fast people! This delightful little creation is for a new customer. Emily messaged me a couple of weeks ago and enquired about ordering a cot quilt for a friend. We went back and forth discussing colour options, and when I showed her the Sphere by Zen Chic range, she loved it! We edited out the yellows and dark greens, and stuck mostly with the blues, greys and the multi-colour print with a splash of yellow. I managed to whip this baby up in a couple of days - which is good seeing as though it has to be in the post by the end of this week to make it to its destination!
I've mixed in a little white Homespun and it's bound with a gorgeous blue Homespun also.
I've incorporated a couple of the fabulous Botanics prints by Carolyn Friedlander. They blend in beautifully! Aurifil #2810 - turquoise blue - was pulled out to straight line quilt 1/4" either sides of each square.
And the aptly names "baby blue" homespun was chosen for the backing.
I took a number of different photos of the quilt, and as I was walking back inside popped the quilt down on the steps whilst I grabbed something - and realised the the colours really popped against the ageing concrete! Voila!
