I actually started this quilt and gave it away pre-blogging, so I apologise in advance for the lack of construction photos. But I just had to share this quilt with you as it’s one of my favourites so far.
She spends a fair amount of time having sleep overs at her Nanna’s house because of her Mum’s work schedule, so I thought I would make her a little something special to snuggle into on those nights.
I recently stumbled across Chasing Cottons Quilt Designs and immediately fell in love with her Sand Castles quilt pattern – you can buy it here.

So I bought it (yay for me) and headed down to Spotlight to stock up on fabric.

As it’s quite a bright and zany quilt, I decided to stick with the same sky fabric through-out (the pattern suggests using different fabrics).
I also used a sand coloured fabric with little ladybirds to tone it down a little (or she’ll never get to sleep!) and tie it all together. I didn’t have enough fabric to do the pieced border, but I think it turned out fine without it.

I had so much fun making this quilt, it’s bright and cheerful and just brings a smile to my face every time I remember handing this quilt to Pooky and hearing the squeal of delight she let out. Just makes it all worthwhile doesn’t it?
