Cotton Fabric for sashing and border, Sophie Charm Squares, batting and Flannel fabric for back.
What was your inspiration?
I came across a great Sophie car-seat quilt / stroller cover tutorial on Moda Bakeshop by Jennie from Clover & Violet and I decided to try it out. I loved the idea of adding ties to the quilt to secure it to a carseat.
I thought it would be a perfect gift for my little grand-daughter's first birthday.
What are you most proud of?
I am very pleased with my quilting using my new walking foot. I did the echoing, grid, curved, sun-rays and of course stitch in the ditch.
This little quilt has many uses, as well as being used for the car-seat it is also great for a buggy/stroller and with the ties it cannot be kicked off! You could even use it as a little play mat too!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This was a lot of fun to do and the quilting class by Wendy is brilliant!
