Dandelion Heart Quilts
Rainbow Baby / Toddler Quilt
Approximate size: 38.5” x 38.5” (98cm x 98cm)
This one-off baby quilt will make a wonderful unique gift for a newborn or rainbow baby shower.
• How can it be used?
As a crib / cot blanket, pram or pushchair blanket, car seat blanket, play mat, tummy time blanket etc. It would even look beautiful as a wall quilt in a nursery.
This quilt is a one-off and won't be made again. Please make sure you don't miss out!
• What type of fabric did you use?
I used 100% cotton fabrics from a gorgeous fabric range called 'Bee Cross Stitch' by a fabulous designer called Lori Holt (you can see the cute little cross stitch effect on the fabrics.) The backing fabric was locally sourced and you can see a patchwork stripe in the centre which uses all the colours from the front of the quilt. The batting / wadding inside is cotton / polyester.
This beautiful cotton fabric has a cozy and snuggly feel and will get softer over time - perfect for babies and young children.
• Do you use chemicals / spray basting glues when making your quilts?
No, I don't use spray glue to baste my fabric layers together before quilting (sewing the lines on the quilt). Spray glues are flammable and do not wash out.
• How do I wash it?
It is ready to use (pre-washed in harsh chemical-free laundry powder and machine dried) but you should warm machine wash it separately (I recommend Colour Catchers for the first couple of washes due to the bright colours.) Tumble dry it on low heat. Dry flat on the washing line out of the sun (to avoid fading.)
Still thinking about it but have questions? Please don’t hesitate to contact me.
I am so delighted with this quilt. It is beautifully made and the colours are wonderful. In these days of mass production it is such a treat to be able to buy something so beautiful and completely hand made. I am sure it will become a family heirloom
