Guest Post: Mini Chevron Taggie Quilt
Ah! Baby quilts – is there anything in the world more cute and more satisfying to make? I think not! These little beauties are great for trying out new techniques, for brining through that ever-growing stash and, more importantly, make rad gifts for the Littles! Chevrons are never off my radar right now. I want to add them into every single thing I make. And, I mean every single thing. So, when I got the latest bundle of fab fabrics from SimplySolids, there was little doubt in my mind that these would end up as a chevron-something! There is just something about the neat shapes that make up the chevron motif that makes my heart feel happy. They are organised, regular, modern and look great in every single colour. I love the collections of aqua in this StashClub Bundle from Simple Soids – its fresh, cool and with the addition of some super bright colour-popping ribbon details makes this great for boys and girls. The addition of little ribbon tags isn’t anywhere nearly as tricky as it you might think, and transforms a little cuddle quilt into a tactile comforter that Littles will want to tote about with them wherever they go – and as a person who regularly hand makes gifts for Littles, this is by far the greatest compliment that you can get!

I’m crushing on quilting pretty hard right now as I prepare for the upcoming Quilts UK Show in Malvern – so, I’m currently surrounded by so many little quilts, in various stages of completion. There is a bit of an incentive to get these finished up as soon as possible – not only because the show is looming, but also because there is a sweet wee pup that seems to think that every quilt that is created in this house is automatically his. I tell myself that when he gets involved while I’m pinning or basting that he is lending me a helping paw…I think it might be more accurate to say that he is actually staking his claim! Does anyone else have this problem with their pets getting involved with their makes?!
