Scrappy Catty Mini Quilt for Albert

So as I’m currently sans-Albert the cat (boo hoo, sniff) – although I’m sure he’s in marvellous pro-catty hands in Cardiff (as apposed to the doggies-might-chase-him-up-the-garden-never-to-be-seen-again environment here) – here is a rather indulgent catty post about a little quilt I made for my beloved feline friend from quilt wadding scraps and fabricy scraps and lots of quilted lines!

Bunting Backlog #2 !!

It’s happened again! A little backlog of bunting snaps has stacked up, so here’s a peak into my latest bunting adventures and custom name bunting orders…

a groovy rainbow colour spectrum for baby Artemis in Greece.
A beautifully colourful range of red, orange, yellow, green and blue patterned and plain fabrics. Modern florals, stops and polka dots – a perfect not-too-girly choice for a little baby named after the God of war! :)

The first Crafty Prawn name bunting to feature accents – well you want it be perfect after all eh? I love this selection of ditsy floral rose prints, striped linen and small polka dots. The subtle shades make for a girly but not too sickly-sweet-baby-focused colour scheme.

blog-01…and finally, it’s another special nephew bunting for my nephew Jago’s 1st birthday, back in Brecon, Wales!!!
Made in a soft tonal range of blues, greys and greens which will also co-ordinate with Jago’s quilt, this name bunting is extra long – for a special nephew after all – and features two spotty yellow stars on either end of the name.

Geometric ‘Sunburnt Panda’ Patchwork Quilt

This quilt got a lot of attention when I posted some pictures on facebook – but as yet no sale – so thought it deserved it’s own special blog post, with some behind the scenes making shots!

Wonderfully bold geometric ‘Sunburnt Panda’ patchwork quilt.
Fully reversible with modern black & white off set chevron patchwork on one side, a funky graphic animal print on the other; and a striking stab of red for the binding, stitching and one arrow…read on to find out more!

On sale NOW in my Etsy shop here, this quilt features, among other animals, pandas and with the red accents, I’ve named it Sunburnt Panda! Sure to deliver a punch of geometric style and graphic pattern to a toddler’s bedroom or brighten up your living room with a bold combination of black & white offset chevrons and unique funky animal pattern.
049_edit_sml***********************************************************
inspiration & fabric…
…classic colour combination of black and white, with a punch of red to blow your panda socks off!
…the star of this quilt is the unique ‘White Safari’ fabric (by Timeless Treasures), which features a whole menagerie of black and white animals, to name but a few…pandas, zebras and magpies.
blog2-01***********************************************************
making…
…pieced together from hundreds of 100% cotton black & white half square triangles arranged to form the off-set chevron pattern; with one striking red arrow positioned in the right-hand corner.
…made using ‘Hobbs heirloom’ quality 80% cotton 20% polyester batting – quilt is light but surprisingly very warm.
…edged with handmade double thickness red binding, giving a lovely cohesion to the red accents scattered through the quilt.
…comes with a special ‘The Crafty Prawn‘ fabric label attached on the reverse of the quilt…
blog-01**********************************************************
the quilt…

…nice and big measuring approx. 45” x 60” (114cm x 152cm)
…perfect size for…
…a generous baby quilt…
…toddler/children’s bedding…
or
…a fabulous sofa throw or blanket for everyday use.
…a truly unisex item, perfect for both funky girls and boisterous boys!…

etsy1-01_smletsy3-01-01_sml********************************************************
the special bits…
…machine-quilted using a combination of accent red coloured thread and invisible black and white on the geometric side; and simple white on the animal side.
…quilting detail gives a lovely highlight to the geometric pattern, while the invisible quilting through the chevrons add to the textural quality of the quilt and demonstrates real attention to detail!
…quilt can be used from toddler-hood when you’re little one can pick out the pandas, through to adult-hood, when the modern geometric pattern will still be right on-trend!

…shipped within 1-3 days…

Bunting Backlog…!

 After a little flurry of personalised name-bunting orders just before christmas, I thought I would share my backlog of bunting snaps

…a sophisticated grey, red, navy and baby-blue palette for baby Hudson in Indiana, USA.
Colours chosen specially to co-ordinate with Hudson’s bedding with a smidge of checked red linen in there too as this was also used in the current bedding. Want to see pictures in more detail? click here.blog-01
…a juicy combo of sunny yellow, emerald green and royal blue for little Leo in Utah, USA
I ordered a special fabric for this one on the customers request – called ‘Delft..the city i love so well!’ by Bora (Deborah van de Leijgraaf) – and believe it or not was designed here in The Netherlands; printed in America by Spoonflower.com; and promptly shipped to Rotterdam where it was used in a lovely length of The Crafty Prawn bunting; only to be popped back in the post to the USA to be hung in Leo’s nursery. Amazing eh?! Want to see pictures in more detail? click here.

Rainbow name-bunting will soon be available in The Crafty Prawn shop…very soon. Want to see pictures in more detail? click here.
