My Journey in Quilts: Part 2

This is, I think, my favourite quilt! I made it for my younger son’s fifth birthday and although it is by now mOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAeans the most complicated I love it! Red and aqua and white are among my most favourite colour combinations, I think they are so vibrant and optimistic together.

The pattern was inspired – again – by a quilt in Kaffe Fassett’s book “Caravan of Quilts” and again I forgot the name of the pattern. In contrast to the original I interspersed the star block with solid block to make the quilt more quiet. Not that a little boy needs to much quiet of course 😉


Like the previous quilt I handquilted this one, very sparingly, in red. I only picked out the stars and although I did not quilt more because I have never worked out how to do it properly without puckering I really like the result in this case.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
