Baby quilt

I really enjoyed making this baby quilt and it has had plenty of compliments. It was fun. It is designed to look like a board game. I have red buttons for counters and pompoms for balls. There is a mix of modern and traditional children's images and the whole thing is very colourful. I toned it down a little with the pale blue polka dot nursery fabric and the beige edging. There are pinwheel and nine patch blocks to add to the image blocks. I have sewn on braid and ric rac which makes it look a bit like snakes and ladders. The inside is polar fleece so the whole thing is very easy care. I made a bag for it and attached a knitted pouch with a colourful cat and then the card is made of pressed hearts ease flowers. The quilt is now with its new owner and well loved.
