Visually, the spectrum has always made me happy to look at. I love the flow of the colours and how it's such a natural beauty, from a rainbow to a crystal catching the light.
I am going to embark on my first quilt, it's not going to be a hexie bonanza... it's going to be a Crayon Quilt, kindly tutored and explained by the very talented Sew Mama Sew
I'm going to make it into a play mat. My plan is to make it very thick, so bambina will be comfy crawling, rolling, napping and playing on it. With the help of 2 layers of batting encasing a layer of 405 GSM fibre bond wadding, hopefully should be thick enough.
The end mat should be about 115 x 115 cm (or 45 x 45")
- I have cut the squares into 7" squares, 25 in total in 7 different shades: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and Pink
- In total 25 squares
Next is the not so aesthetically pleasing job of cutting out 25 white 7" squares.
I am in no rush to get this finished quickly, I am just enjoying the process and hoping this will lead to a very pretty result!
Any ideas what fabric to use as binding? The pic above uses a yellow check. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment with the link to the fabric.
