So despite the lack of quilt related posts, I have actually been lucky enough to be asked to make quite a few ‘Crafty Prawn Custom-Made Quilts’ this year. I’ve neglected blogging about them which results in them just sitting on my computer, hiding away like shrinking violets. So here’s #1…
A dusky pink, teal and muted tonal quilt – in a random patch layout – made especially for a little Bronwin bub.
I love making things for lovely families I know – makes it all the more special!
Originally inspired by a cushion featuring William Morris’ Strawberry Thief print in a muted colourway, I put together a stylish, sophisticated but playful palette of vintage, new and collected plains, tones and patterns. There’s even a little bit of William Morris fabric thrown in – well, what would you expect for a quilt destined for a beautiful house in Islington, London!
With personalised custom hand embroidery in the form of the new bub’s full name and birthdate AND a little message from her doting aunties and uncle, this quilt is a total one off! In an all over random-patch layout, with a teal polka dot binding and border around the hand-embroidered panels; and a subtle oatmeal pinstripe linen on the reverse.
Thank you Bronwins for asking me to make your newest family member a little quilt.
And here she is snuggled up in it…
