The Princess and the Pea Quilt

Some days, especially this week, seem to fly by without much productivity. And I know you will tell me how productive I am, but sometimes I wish you could take a look behind the scenes at my organized chaos. I did manage to steal a number of hours of time yesterday (and they are sleeping hours) to make this little baby quilt.


The front of the baby girl quilt features the much loved Princess and the Pea fabric by Heather Ross from the Far Far Away range.


The back of the quilt is made from fabrics by Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett and again Heather Ross.


I just know there are little Princesses out there who would adore this cute fabric! It is a double gauze fabric, and a little more difficult to work/quilt with, but this and quite a few others from the range are well worth adding to your stash.


It is bound in bright orange Kaffe Fassett fabric (Roman Glass - Circus) to compliment the overall look of the quilt.

It is for sale in my Etsy Store.  SOLD

  3. How do you add the binding so quickly. Do you do it by machine or by hand?

  7. Enough, already already! It's time to address the Princess and Pea issues. It's time to revisit the childhood. And I couldn't care less if the Mr has anything to say about sleeping under a queen size quilt version like yours!

  12. Another great quilt! You are amazingly fast. I love the fabrics and wish I had more Heather Ross. What few bits I have I'm reluctant to cut just yet.
