I made these two quilts a while ago but I think I've never really shared them with you. So, here we go...
This is actually the quilt I made for my son. My daughter got a pink version but I think she secretly likes this green one better. Hahahaha, I can't blame her...
Let me tell you a little more about them. Every night I tuck my kids in bed, using their wrap them in fairytales quilts. And every night I tell them that their quilt will keep them safe through the night, protecting them from nightmares and sad thoughts. Because every stitch it took me making those quilts, I made while I was thinking of them. And when I have to leave them for the night, my love and their quilts will keep them safe until we can cuddle again in the morning. ME and MY KIDS - we know they work. Every. Single. Night.
And they are not only made with all my love but also using some of my most precious prints. Why hoarding all the beautiful fabric for something special? They are only young once and when they are in their 30s, they might not appreciate a fairy quilt anymore... Or maybe they do?!
Dang. Even the scraps are super pretty. Aren't they?
I cut into my precious collection of Heather Ross prints and I don't regret it one bit. We only live once and I can't tell you how much joy I got from making them.
Why not join me making this quilt?
Over the course of 8 weeks I will be teaching you how I made my wrap them in fairytales quilt. But not only that. It's all about the community. Together we will be creative, whilst the world outside seems to go back into lockdown again.
In march that almost suffocated me. I couldn't do anything creative and lost my sewing mojo completely. But this time around I promised myself not to let it happen again. This time we will defeat the lockdown blues together and make something pretty instead. Together. In our beautiful community.
I've already set up the Facebook group for us, if you haven't joined yet. It's totally free. And like I said, NO PATTERN NEEDED. I carefully talk you through. Step-by-step. If you have never made a quilt but have a sewing machine, you can totally join!
If you like to know more about our quilty social experiment you can find it over here.
Please take care and all the best.
