Cath Kidston Applique


I got the lovely Cath Kidston Make! book and have been dying to give the appliqueing a go.

I have done a bit before but always on the sewing machine, I have never finished it off by hand, and I have to say the end result is lovely.

I bought this second hand dolls cot for my daughter and have been wanting to make her a new quilt and pillow for it.

I am a sucker for making everything reversible and the fabric I used worked really well for that. One side was the large floral pattern, which I then used to cut out the flowers and applique them on the polka dot side.

Here's another quilt set I made about a year ago, funnily enough it fits perfectly. I used the same pink polka dots so that it can all mix and match. Actually everything I do for my daughter usually involves these pink polka dots. There's also a baby bag I made for my daugther that matches this quilt. I might take some photos and post them later.
Again, it's reversible!
Thank you Cath...you rock!

Gorgeous! So beautifully done! B's baby is one lucky piece of plastic - ha ha! You need to photo B's lovely pink skirt - that's awesome too. See you tomorrow. x

Hello Stacey! These look a little like the fabulous ones you kindly made for playgroup. I love the pretty fabrics you have used. At least if you use the pink polka dot fabric often, everything co-ordinates! I would love a nosy in that lovely book you have. I also adore Kath Kidson. Have a great day!

Hi Stacey - great job on the quilts. I've got Cath Kidson's book too and have been keen to get a project underway ... but wondered how easy/hard it would be. Thanks for the real life inspiration.
