Over the last few years, a friend of mine has requested for me to make some cot quilts for her to give as gifts to new mothers and younger children. These specific requests were for them to be personalised with the name of the child stitched in the centre of the quilt.
However I created two quilts to sell, one aimed more towards girls and the other toward boys. The quilts are made by stitching squares together, to create a patchwork top, I then quilted this to a fleece backing, avoiding the need for wadding, which not only makes the outcome cheaper to produce, but I generally find the quilts much easier to make this way. And to finish the edges, I stitch bias binding around the edge, usually in a contrasting colour to the border. All the stitching on the quilts is done by machine, which, for me, is much quicker and more convenient.
Thanks for reading.
