Another little quilt I’ll be teaching next term is this cot quilt, called Pinwheels and Prairies!

Finished Size 44″ x 54″

I was gifted some ’30’s Playtime’ fabrics (by Chloe’s Closet) and thought they would make a cute baby quilt.

Pinwheels are fun and popular to make, and so are prairie points.  Sometimes quilt borders can be a bit boring – I love how the prairie points add interest to this little quilt.

I had a bit of fun with the quilting too!  You can see it more clearly on the back.  The central section is quilted like a diamond, with lines in the outer sections running in the opposite direction.

When I write up the pattern for this quilt, there will be the option to make a single bed size too.

So that’s one happy Ted!  (Really must paint my props ladder!)

Hope you’ve been enjoying some lovely sunshine this week!
