A blanket for Billy

I made my first ever quilt!

quilt

Very badly. Don’t look close. I hope Billy’s parents don’t notice. I’m sure they will have other, way more important, things to think about. I just hope its big enough – he was born a whopping 9lb 1 oz.

Its a very simple design, a patchwork of scraps in a strip, then joined to three other wide strips. Backed with some African print fabric and machine quilted in 3 or 4 lines. I made it inside out and turned it out, to save binding. There are directions for this in Bend The Rules Sewing and something similar in my book too (which is weighing in at about 1.54kg, or 3lb 6oz).

Even though I had several months notice for this (and Billy was a week late) I didn’t get round to making this until after his due date. About a week ago. And I still haven’t posted it. ooops.
