Quilt in a day!!!



So a good friend had a wee baby boy and i knew i wanted to make her something really nice. I had got some super cute fabric with mice and cherrys on it and decided I would create something using that.

So I decided to make a rag quilt and wow how quick and easy are these babies!!!! I was so stoked with how it turned out and think this will def be my top pick for new baby pressies.

The whole thing took prob about 5 hours, which is not too bad.


The thing with rag quilts that make them look all snugly and nice is the great fluffy edges. I washed this one twice to get the edges fluffing up, but the more it gets washed the better it will look!

  2. This is really cute - I love the fluffy seams - fab! I would love to try quilting and eventually make a quilt for each of my kids. Like you, I have four, so it might take a while....! These seams might appeal to one of them though - I found you via kiwimummyblogs - your blog is lovely!
