Little Girl Patchwork II


A few weeks ago I finished my patchwork quilt using fabrics from both of Sarah Jane’s collections, Children at Play and Out to Sea.  I’ve now finished a second one.


I really love these fabrics.  They’re bright and happy and full of childlike things.  Perfect for a little girl.


The quilting is much simpler on this quilt than on the first.  I used straight lines on the diagonal, going both directions through the center of every square.


The back of the quilt is a minky fabric with embossed dots.  Simple but oh, so soft.   I should probably mention that on these quits I’ve used flannel in place of batting on the inside of the quilt for what I feel is a perfect weight blanket.  Warm in the winter but light enough to use all year.


I went with a gray binding for this quilt.  The dot is a Denyse Schmidt print which I’ve really enjoyed using in several quilts to date.


A very simple quilt, but beautiful as well.  All ready to be snuggled and loved.


  • Very very sweet & I love the gray binding and your great job on the machine-stitched binding!

  • really pretty and definitely a perfect littl egirl quilt. I love that grey dot for binding! it really sets everything of so well. I always forget grey when I think about colour choices, which is a shame, because it always looks stunning.

  • This is gorgeous! After seeing your first one my Emma insisted that she needed the same so I better get moving with this fabric!
