Ballerinas & Bugs: A Finished Quilt

It's finished. The quilt for my cousin's daughter who turned 6 yesterday. The biggest quilt I have made to date. 

Mum did all of the quilting while I helped wrangle the bulk through the machine. Thanks Mum x

As I mentioned in previous posts, I used the 1 + 2 = Easy Quilt Pattern Tutorial by Samelia's Mum but I used yardage cut into 10" squares instead of a layer cake.

I used a 2.4m wide fabric from my local quilt shop on the back.

This binding fabric was a remnant piece I got from Spotlight ages ago. Matched perfectly.

I took it over to my cousin yesterday and put it on Miss T's bed ready for when she got home from school. I got a message last night saying that she loves it.

I'm linking up with Laura from Quokka Quilts for TGIFF.


  1. Oh that would have just been such an amazing bed to come home to. You have done a beautiful job with fabric selection and pattern. I love that binding a lot.

  2. beautiful, perfect for a little girl, although I suppose 6 is a big girl to her.

  3. Miss T is very lucky! Great job, Waverlee. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  4. This is gorgeous Waverlee. Love your choice of colours and the pattern.
