Simple love {quilting}

Friday, 15 February 2013

My pack of low volume charms received as part of the LVswap organised by Rebecca Lynne is finished. I was not sure what I would make when I entered the swap. But after some blog stalking research, I found inspiration here and here. And here is simple love - the quilt. 


Since yesterday, I added quilted in red around the heart. I have thought hard about the quilting, and decided to keep it simple. I may change my mind later, but for the time being I am quite happy with it. 


 Here is what I used for the quilt.. 
1. Liberty bias tape found here; 2. and 3. The low volume fabrics I sent as part of the swap; 4.  Fabric I won from Plum and June Giveaway; 5. cannot remember the fabric (anyone); 6. Kona Red fabric

To hang it, I used an idea from a blog I cannot remember the name of (but if you know who you are, please let me know!). 



And here we are the perfect quilt for a Valentines Day photoshoot of Baby MiH. The quilt is in fact not really my style - it was done purely for the photoshoot (thank you cards for presents we received) and practising my piecing .. Should it be a giveaway? 

Simple love has now made it to Annabella's home in Marrakesh

  5. Why not use it for a play mat for baby? The high contrast of the fabrics will catch his eye. Love it! I adore red against neutrals in quilting. In fact, I have a top that really should do something with!

  7. It's darling and very appropriate for a Valentine addition to your decor (even if it's not quite your style!).

  8. It is beautiful. Are you sure you dont want to use it for baby mih? If you are certain that you dont it would be loved at a chilfrens hospice or other caregiving group. Just a thought. Xxx
