A quilt for me!

We spend a lot of time travelling between our farm and our house in town, a distance of a couple of hours. My Sweetness usually drives and likes to have the air-conditioning in the car set on 'fridge' temperature to keep him awake. Inevitably, I sit shivering in the passenger's seat. I made this cuddly quilt to travel with me!

It is a quick raw-edge quilt made from a layer cake of Bonnie & Camille's very happy and fresh new range 'Bliss' for Moda.
I thought I might put together a tutorial for this quilt. It is a quick and fun way to use those layer cakes that are accumulating in the cupboard!
And it is a perfect size for the car. No more freezing car trips for me!

  5. Wonderful. We spend so much time doing craft for other people - it is good to remember ourselves sometimes too. Love the shaggy quilts like this. Cherrie

  6. I would love to read your tutorial. I thought I saw Bliss flannels. Is that what you used? A car quilt is a great idea. So pretty!

  10. Call me ignorant, but I would love you to do a tute on this style of patchwork. I would love to make a cushion in this manner...by the way your quilt is a beauty.
