Olly's Quilt

Olly's Quilt

I made this for a friend of mine's new baby 'Olly'. I designed the quilt myself, I wanted it to be bright, colourful and happy!


All of the fabrics are 100% cotton. The backing is a really fun fabric with trucks, tractors and diggers all over in primary colours.

I had a lot of fun making this quilt and experimenting with the combinations of different colours and finding how the appearance of a colour can change dramatically depending on what colour it sits next to.

I applied the name using bondaweb and zig-zagged densely around the letters using the same colour. The quilt is entirely stitched by machine. I'm not a great quilter and I wanted the lines to be fairly clean so I quilted in the ditch.
My favourite part of the quilt is the multi-coloured pieced border.

Oh goodness!
by: Abby

This is amazing. I'm 16 and my only aunt just found out she is pregnant! So in one of my High School Electives (Textiles and Fashions) I'm going to make a quilt. I won't have the class in a couple months when she finds out the gender so I need to make a neutral one. If you could, just sent me an email telling me how many yards of each color I need to get? I would be so appreciative!

How Bright and Cheery is That!
by: Anonymous

Lucky Olly, I say. How bright and cheery. Would there be any chance of knowing what measurements and a little bit about how you did it? allewis@ozemail.com.au is where I can be contacted.
Thanks for sharing it with us.
