Patchwork: Retro Boys Quilt

This quilt was finished before Christmas (2016 - ha!), but hasn't yet reached its recipient who lives in Kent. I made his twin sister a quilt back in the summer


He had a particular colour palette in mind and I hope I have achieved something fun but not too young either.


The fabrics are a combination of things I had in my stash, combined with Thicket by Gingiber and Nocturne by Janet Clare.


I kept to a fairly simple nine-patch block, but even so, some of my piecing has gone a little awry. I quilted it sparsely with stitch in the ditch (neither me or my machine are really up to anything much more than that), and finished it with no binding because I think it stands up to more vigorous machine washing that way.


I can't wait to meet up with our friends to give this to their son.

Love Mrs Jones x
