A Quilt for Baby Kyle

Well done to those that correctly guessed the location for the pictures of Oscars quilt in that post; those photos, and these ones were taken at the amazing Chatsworth House (which was used as Pemberly in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice).

Today I get to share some more pictures of the beautiful house and gardens under the guise of showing you another baby quilt; this one was a gift for baby Kyle. I really hope that Kyle uses and loves this quilt as much as his big sister does her quilt.

I absolutely love the fabrics I used, a combination of ants and woodpeckers, and some 'filler' fabrics (mostly variations on spots and stripes, as that's my MO, fabrics shown here). I showed you this quilt top last September, but only quilted it more recently. I made a basic design where I cut each fabric into two strips and one square, and pieced the square into a random spot cut in the strips.

The back is a blue version of the grey ant fabric on the front of the quilt. To keep the simplicity, I then quilted the quilt with straight lines about 1/4 inch away from each of the seam lines. Lastly, the quilt was bound with a darker grey to frame the quilt.



  1. So lovely! The fabric choices are too cute!

  2. Very pretty! I love the colours.

  3. Amazing Rachel! And that's a wicked place to show it off too ;)

  4. Your quilts are amazing! It was lovely to meet you in London and find your blog.

  5. Love this quilt. The only thing wrong with the picture is the lack of a dripping Mr. Darcy coming out of the water ;)


Comments make me smile :)
