My Mum loves purple. I don’t – or didn’t. After making this quilt, I’m coming around to the idea!
It was truly a pleasure choosing the fabrics to make a lap quilt for her birthday, and I love the way they work together. I added in some pink from my stash, but everything else was bought for this project.
The pattern is adapted from the Day to Night Quilt from Quick and Easy Quilts by Lynne Goldsworthy. It’s a great book, because it combines some more tricky techniques with simpler ones, making the quilts relatively quick to make, but still being interesting to look at.
The triangle/pinwheel centre took some time, but the brick pattern around the outside was very quick.
I backed it with some daisy print cotton in grey/blue, made wider with a line of colourful bricks.
And finally, some scrappy binding!
