Grandsons first quilt made by granny

This quilt was made by me with love for my little grandson Dylan .

I chose the bright primary colour to stimulate his sensory development.

I was lucky enough to buy the printed squares already cut up from a local quilt exhibition. The plain i bought from the cheap shop in Tiptree Essex where they have a great selection of fabrics.

The backing fabric i bought brand new from a boot sale  in the summer for a £1, its surprising just what you find .

I used my new sewing machine for putting the pieces together then hand stitched in the ditch to finish it off

 Dylan looks happy with his quilt.

Florence our cat certainly likes the quilt.
