introducing:: the XOX quilt kit
i am super happy and very, very excited to finally share my very first handprinted quilt kit! this quilt has been in the works for weeks, i probably spent as much time mixing and choosing colours as i did actually printing the fabric, constructing the sample AND writing the pattern/instructions! i wanted to make it fairly unisex, bright and colourful but with colours that are just a little bit off the norm, that have a little character, a little depth, if you will. it is available as a complete kit with the quilt top squares plus custom printed backing and binding fabric or you can just purchase the squares for the top and choose your own backing and binding fabric. either way, you also get a little instruction booklet guiding you through the very simple steps to put this quilt together and this would be an especially excellent project for a beginner quilter.
maesey and i had some good fun doing a little photoshoot in the backyard yesterday while sophie had her nap. sophie probably would have been a more suitable model since the quilt is cot/crib sized but mae takes direction so well and really does love to have her photo taken : )
it feels so great to finally have this out in the world! x
