A camping quilt…

I adore a quilt and felt that we needed one for camping and outdoors; one that was made from only scraps and fabric from the stash.

It needed to be really quick as I only had a week to complete it before we left for Germany. I decided on a scrappy quilt that would require minimal quilting.

All the backing squares were cut from brushed cotton – for softness and comfort. Wadding in between and the tops from heavier weight baby cord or similar fabrics. 9.5 inch squares with a quilted cross from corner to corner through all three layers and then all sewn together before finally snipping the seams to create a frilly/fluffy edging. The fluffiness will increase over time, washing and use.

I absolutely love it and it looks amazing in the tent. The added bonus is that I won’t have to be too concerned about it getting dragged around and well used – I hope!

Quilting success and a lovely warm holiday too.
