The Princess and the Pea Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This is the first quilt I have made in two years, and from start to finish I completed it in 9 days. My other quilts have all taken me at least a few months! I was really excited to be back into quilting and just had a rush of design ideas so I worked into the early hours of the morning quite a few nights. Was well worth it when I see my daughter giggling as she matches her feet up with the princess'. Somehow they turned out the exact same size as hers :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? I've found that if I try and do a satin stitch on a single piece of fabric, the fabric will often pucker and become a problem. If the piece that you are satin stitching is quite thick this isn't a problem at all.

What you will need

  • cotton quilting fabrics
  • embroidery threads
  • single bed doona (duvet)
