The fabric mule (my lovely mum) arrived last night for an earlier than scheduled 10 day visit and I've had fun unpacking the fabric, thread and batting. But best of all, The Simple Love quilt has come to live with me!
A couple of weeks ago on St.Valentine's, the lovely Nat at Made in Home posted pictures of her Simple Love quilt - a quilt she had made for a photo shoot with her beautiful 2 month old boy for thank you cards.
Now despite those beautiful pops of pixelated reds against the gorgeous low value charms, Nat confessed that she wasn't really feeling the love. I know. She posed the thought that perhaps it would be good for a giveaway. I cheekily suggested that yes, she should just give it to me. And she did!
Now I'll confess that despite the photos of Baby MIH on the quilt, I thought the quilt was a mini - kind of wall hanging size but as you can see from the picture above that it's big!
This is the softest quilt I have ever felt. It's truly beautiful. Nat kept the quilting to a minimum with some red hand stitching around the heart blocks - just perfect.
The binding is Liberty and the backing has some lovely red Gingham and more of those lovely charms.
I am so thrilled that Nat sent me this quilt - she said she wanted a home where it will be loved and I can promise that in bucketloads. Now it wouldn't be fair if Nat wasn't to get something in return and I'm hatching a plan - thank you Nat!!
