Rosie’s quilt #2


Progress! It isn’t finished yet, but it’s coming on.

I got the original four blocks made up but it definitely wasn’t going to be large enough for what I wanted. Rosie loves sleeping on the chair next to the bed and was very impressed when I borrowed one of the other small quilts to put on it. I’m thinking that a larger quilt plus a cushion would be perfect for her.

These are the four blocks that I did to start with.

Rosie's quilt-02I just needed to find more fabric for eight more blocks. I had more than enough of the patterned squares from the charm packs so that wasn’t a problem. I had a bit more of the blue fabric and enough of a matching brown fabric, but that left me needing something for the centres. I didn’t have any more of the silver fabric so I took four pink/lilac squares from the grunge charm packs and sent for a pale golden-brown for the other four squares.

Rosie's quilt - 03 Rosie's quilt -04Next step is to cut them into four and then play around with them to see how I want to arrange them. I’ve got some long shifts coming up this week so it may be a while before I can get back to this but I’m happy with how much I got done this weekend, considering that most of today has been spent in front of the TV with three Wimbledon matches and the British Grand Prix.

  1. Looking beautiful! Love the Asian themed fabrics. Nice addition to what you already had.


  2. oooh lots of lovely Japanese prints for Rosie ^^
    I love a disappearing 9 patch – look forward to seeing this one take shape


    • The little charm packs were so pretty that I couldn’t resist them but it’s taken me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with them. D9Ps are really easy and effective. And bonus – no HSTs LOL
