GIRLQUILT.

I finally got around to completing this baby quilt for my new grandniece! Phew!
.

I wanted to use hexie flowers in a fun way – scattered through the quilt like a garden bed. The bright, fresh colours of the solids give some contrast and help the flowers really pop against the background of the quilt. This quilt really was about pairing Liberty prints with Solids to help them to really sing! Although I played around with a huge variety of different rainbow coloured Liberty prints in the background, I tried to stick to the pinky peach and yellow colour scheme within the flowers to bring some consistency!

I thought that hand embroidering around them in a petal pattern would be a sweet finishing touch!

I chose Kayoko C for the centre of each flower – not to just give them a yellow pollen look, but also because it is just such a gorgeous yellow Liberty – I am in love! It is a bit softer than if I had have used the solid lemon yellow… Yellow and pink just go so nicely together and stops it from being TOO girly girly – which is definitely okay at times but not really what I as going for here!
.

I actually used the same Kayoko C fabric as the binding to tie it all together nicely – we don’t have Kayoko Bias pre-packs in the shop – however I do have some on the roll that you can purchase by the metre, just pop me an email if you are chasing some. You can see the backing fabric here as well – Daniel DJ C was the perfect mix of all the pastel pinks, peaches and yellows!

Here it is! Finished and waiting to head off to it’s new home. I really don’t think there could be a nicer gift than a soft and beautiful Liberty quilt! 🙂 I hope the family likes it!
