PINK BABY QUILT WITH ELEPHANT

I love making quilts for babies. First of all they are small and thus easy to handle. You can make all kind of lovely designs. And it doesn't take too long to finish. That is to say.....every quilt takes a long time, but I can still oversee the project and don't get overwhelmed!


This one I made in the beginning of the summer. Last year I bought a kind of little tablecloth with big animals printed on it at the Year Market of Mystras. The idea was to cut out the animals and use them for applique.
That's what I did with the elephant. I appliqued it with the machine. A lot of the fabric is vintage and bought in a shop in Kalamata. Other squares are from Holland, bought in winter when I went to the Westermarkt in Amsterdam. The borders are from a sheet bought in Athens. Wherever I am I can't seem to resist the purchase of cotton!!



For the back I used a piece from a duvet cover. I got it from one of the two secondhand shops in Sparta.

Today I bought a cotton skirt and  blouse with lovely prints at the bazaar that the people from the Animal Society had in the Public Library. They need money for an animal shelter. At this moment Sparta doesn't have a shelter, but the society feeds stray dogs and cats in the night at certain places. They also get the animals sterilized.

I am off now to the cinema. Going to see a film with a friend. No idea which movie. Will be a surprise. She just phoned me from her cellphone, but I trust her choice!!!!

Wat een prachtig dekentje. Het moet heerlijk geweest zijn om dit te maken. De foto over het balkon is heel mooi. Kan wel begrijpen dat je overal waar je komt op zoek bent naar mooie lapjes.
Groet, Willemien
