Robotic Triangles – my latest Cot Quilt Set has been a labour of love ! The colours blend into the robots and the navy striped binding is stunning !
I need to apologise for all the photos – yes I am going to bombard you for two reasons. Firstly, I love this set and will be sending it off on Monday with mixed emotions and secondly, I am thoroughly enjoying taking loads of pictures with my new camera !!
Robotic Triangles was created around the backing fabric from the Riley Blake Fabric – Fun Robots by Ann Kelle. I have matched the solid colours on the front to the robots with Robert Kaufman’s Kona cotton solids – Capri, titanium, white, coal, lipstick, ocean and azure !
The navy stripe binding is a Moda basic !
The Cot Quilt is 60×40″ which I find is a great size for not only the cot, but also for a play mat, lap quilt and comforter. This makes the quilt become more versatile and a longterm investment and treasure <3 .
I have quilted Robotic Triangles with the lovely Aurifil thread 2600 light grey and 2021 white. I have used a very modern geometric line and LOVE the secondary pattern these lines intersecting together have made.
While I was quilting, I was reminded of one of those party games ” Guess how many triangles are in this picture ??? There would be A LOT in this one !!
This is just one example of what can be created to produce stunning nursery linen that is truly unique, yet modern and stylish !!
Thanks for letting me swoon over this quilt before I send it away to it’s new home.
Life has been busy, chaotic and loads of fun so far these Summer Holidays. With 4 beautiful children life is NEVER dull, and NEVER predictable !!
These 4 kids are having a BLAST, and we have done a lot of firsts these holidays as our youngest is now 4 1/2. We have gone for bush walks and seen small waterfalls and been to the beach without Daddy. I have always been reluctant to do either of these things by myself with the kids “just in case”, but the older two are older and are stronger swimmers. They are also the cautious ones (thankfully!). Also, the youngest is now capable of walking further and less likely to run into the ocean with NO fear !
The Beach was so much fun – however I took the cautious approach and went to a Bay beach – very small waves – even ripples some would call them !! I thought this way the kids would build up there confidence with the sand, shells and I could keep track of the 4. They built sandcastles, jumped waves, had ice-cream and just generally had a BALL !!
Quilting tends to take a backseat over January. I sneak it in at night or when the kids have settled to watch a movie occasionally. However I have managed to start/ finish some projects along the way. Somewhere in the world this week or the next, a lovely lady in the US will receive a parcel from me !! This photo just gives you a sneak peek at the colours contained. I love Emma Jean Jansen’s Terra Australia range and when it come to internationally swaps I love to send a little with them – as a little piece of Australia too !
I have almost completed my first commissioned Quilt for the 2016. This gorgeous Quilt top and the Anne Krelle Fun Robots as the backing will look stunning in little boys nursery <3.
And of course January here, brings with it another birthday and being spoilt by my family xx
Thank you everyone for your constant support and I am so looking forward to the blessings that 2016 will bring xx
