A Third Birthday Patchwork Quilt Cover


My biggest, who was once our littlest, is about to turn three. I can hardly believe it! I wanted to make him something special that would get loads of use. I also wanted to utilise some of the large stash of fabrics that have been gifted to me recently. This patchwork quilt cover was made entirely from scraps of quilting cottons that were given to me by a dear friend and backed with a sheet. Would you believe it's also my first ever patchwork. I'm so pleased with the colour combination and the design. Elijah loves it too! It's been nice for Eli and I to work on it together and I was so proud when he exclaimed to his Dad tonight "my doona cover IS a doona cover now". I love watching his patience develop in waiting for big projects to be finished and then his appreciation for the completed piece. Just another benefit to giving handmade!
