  Bed Quilts, Patchwork


This was my first attempt at both making a bed quilt and hand quilting and was made for my then two year old son, in the hope of enticing him into a bed. The block was taken from a book which had metric measurements to which I added a ¼" seam allowance. Needless to say the blocks didn't fit together, so I surrounded the houses with a white sashing so they could be cut to the same size. I spent six months hand quilting it only to be bitterly disappointed that all that hard work was invisible as I'd quilted in the ditch around the patchwork!
