I already knitted a blanket for them but of course must make a quilt too. I still have a large stash of Far Far Away by Heather Ross from the collections she did a few years back for Kokka. These are the cotton/linen mix rather than the cotton weight collection that is being re-issued this months.
I bought the entire collection of Far Far Away II at the time and made one quilt in the blue/grey colourway which is still one of my favourites of all time. Originally I thought to make two more in the same pattern; one for each of the other colour schemes which are green/orange and purple/pink.
I love these gorgeous fairytale patterns and also love the cotton/linen mixture although I know most people prefer a 100% cotton. I decided on a bit of improvised piecing instead of squares and mixed the fabric with some of her other collections, some text prints and some Moda cross weave for contrast.
I just cut and pieced, cut pieced to my heart's content.
I tried to emphasis the fairy tale elements by fussy cutting around them although the pieces itself are all fairly large anyway.
This quilt is going to be crib size and I must say it is a real relieve to make something small for a change....I forgotten how quickly a quilt can be made.
