Having more time than usual after work and weekends it’s been great to have something fun to concentrate on during this lockdown time. A family who also work for Trinity Lands had a baby boy just before the lockdown started, I feel for all the new mums out there who don’t have the support around them that they would normally have. I’ve been thinking of this little family lots, as I looked for animals from India that might fit each colour band. I’m almost sad that this tummy time floor quilt is finished cos it was so much fun to make!

Had a lot of fun making up this cot quilt to go overseas. Used the ‘tracing off internet pics’ to make up my applique pieces. I recommend using a pencil rather than a sharpie marker or you’ll have permanent marker all over your screen!

This cot quilt idea came from a block by April Mazzoleni. I love her cute elephant and the patch-worked hill. She had 1 inch squares which I switched out for 1.5 inch squares. Thank you April.

I really like making a quilt that is planned for somebody special. It lets you add specific quirks just for the one you’re making it for. With a new nephew on the way, this cot quilt was so much fun to make. The pukeko pecking the seedling is ‘cos Raglan is full of the pesky garden raiders, the dog is for Dharma who has been the beloved only child for the last 16 years, the puffer fish for the beach, monarch butterflies roost in Raglan trees over winter and the rainbow is for this colourful little family.

With a special little one on its way, it was time to have a go at a pop art quilt. I really like the clean silhouettes of children’s book illustrations from the 50’s so that was what I looked for when I gathered up the animal shapes. The fabrics are a mix of batik and prints and give a vintage vibe while still being fresh. I had fun making it, looking forward to the little grandie’s arrival now!

A few months ago, Colleen Redit spoke at our church about her work in India with the Christian Mission Charitable Trust. If you google her name you’ll come up with her web site. I bought one of the elephant wall hangings off their fund raising craft table and have turned it in to a cot quilt for one of my friends 🙂

The brief for this cot quilt was grey, teal and mustard colours, with a building site theme. I loved doing it since Stan has a tool passion and freely offered advice on which tools and brands I should include. Definitely one of the more fun cot quilts I’ve done 🙂
