This is for my first born son Max. It is his 21st birthday today - 21 years ago now he would have been 2 and 1/2 hours old! In his bedroom, he has blue/grey carpet and an orange wall behind his bed head. This was finished last night in time to wrap it!!! If you do not love this - picture it in different colours of your own choice. The finished size is ideal for his bed. I used chocolate brown sheeting material for backing and 100% cotton batting. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should have basic sewing and quilting skills. This is only my second quilt and I managed without a pattern! SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished size (in metric) 216cm wide x 246 cm long

Supplies Needed

  • Cotton fabrics in the colours of your choice, thread, batting, backing fabric,
  • You will need an iron and ironing board for pressing. A large area (I used the floor once the furniture was moved out of the way) to put it all together. Our dining table was extended so that I could manage the bulkiness of the quilt while finishing it off.

I have always been interested in 'doing' something. When I was little I received a toy sewing machine with a winding handle. It only sewed chain stitch but I made lots of teddy clothes with it. I still have it! I have made a few garden beds out in the back yard - I love to grow Vegetables. Especially from seeds. My biggest problem is birds. I love to cook, sew and garden, I also read quite a bit. Sewing, cooking, reading, gardening is so much better than HOUSEWORK!
