Another finish, the second for the year. This is the quilt that I made for the nephew of The Prince. I started
ages ago some months back & it is finally winging it's way to London today so the kid has it before he turns 5.
Baby is English born, Swedish Mum, Australian Dad and I really tried to find fabrics that reflected his multi national heritage. The large red heart fabric in the border is Swedish, there are pears on the bottom left block (for the time of his birth), sail boats for Oz, snowflakes for Sweden & England, London buses, teapots & all things British in the border. The yellow border represents the sunshine of Australia. I am really pleased with the end result.
Not the best shots in the world but all that was possible before The Prince had to dash off on the train. I really like the 2 coloured binding on this quilt.
MUST. USE. ALL. THE. FABRICS! Still ended up with gingham scraps LOL.
This quilt took so long because it insisted on being 54 inches square. In the end I am glad though as it will see him through for many years to come. I hope he gets years of warmth & feels the love with which it was made.
