Custom Baby Quilt with Birds and Russian Dolls

Last time I told you I'd been busy....

Today I would like to show you a baby quilt I have just completed...
The top is a patchwork of gorgeous fabrics chosen by my lovely customer.....

I tried to make the best of the patterns by fussy cutting most of the squares.......

I had great fun designing the layout :)

The fabrics are very colourful and put together they make a rich and interesting quilt for a baby to look at.....

I love this bird fabric with its blue background......

There are lots of things for baby to see......

....Russian dolls.......

........lorries, cars and buses.... elephant, giraffe and zebra...........

The backing is white with little Russian dolls and makes a lovely contrast to the colourful top.....

The red polka dot binding pulls it all together......


I hope you've enjoyed this post about my latest baby quilt.
I don't know whether you noticed but that cheeky Spencer managed to sneak into three of the photos!
See if you can spot him!

  1. What a great quilt! You did a wonderful job with the design. And Spencer wants to know, no doubt, why he has not been the focus of a post for a while.

  2. Oh, Maggie! This is my favorite one so far! I love all the fabrics and you put them together perfectly!
    Spencer! I wish I could give him a bone!
