Something for Kate ... at last!

This little quilt has been finished for a while now, and has been patiently waiting to have its photo taken. The weather remains dismal, so she is not in her best light.

It is (unsurprisingly!) a gift for Kate, a new niece.

The fabrics are from Melanie Hurlston's happy fabric range called 'Little Menagerie' for Windham Fabrics.

The fabrics feature owls, monkeys, and elephants in Melly's inimitable sweet style.


The pattern is the little version of my 'Abracadabra' pattern.

This quilt makes me happy. I hope it makes Kate happy too :)


  1. I'd be happy too! Gorgeous and exactly what a little girl wants!

  2. gorgeous Ros..........Kate will love it I am sure..........terrible weather........cold and drizzly.........would be good if we got some good rain........

  3. It makes me happy, too. Surely it will make Kate happy and she will adore it.

  4. That's a beautiful quilt. I love it.

  5. Too sweet! I love her name being part of the quilt.
