Vof Vof dear friends! It’s me Hanna here and I am so happy to Welcome you to ‘Pets on Quilts’ show hosted by ‘Lily Pad Quilting’! and to our blog ‘Nero’s Post and Patch’! This time it’s my turn to present our quilt …
I really like these economy blocks because you can have so much fun mixing the colours and lovely prints. It’s fun to make these blocks and to think what fabrics to use and what little pictures to add – like our favourites Moomins!
I show you some process photos. I started to make these blocks last autumn.
There were lots of delicious trimmings.
One of my favourite, pink fabric! And with orange and white, just perfect!
I arranged those blocks on my design wall and that took lot of time. Finally I stopped and desided to stay with this layout.
Then this quilt top went to the self and it was just waiting there … after many moons finally there was a little girl who wanted to snuggle with a pink-orange-red quilt with some little Moomins.
So it was time to continue. I added white borders and picked my cutest Perle no 8 cottons.
I asked if Teje could do the quilting in the shop, because other wise we couldn’t finish it in time.
So she did. She enjoys hand quilting and spent lovely hours stitching this cute quilt.
And then finally it was ready. Oh, I miss this quilt … I want also little, pink quilt! Even the photo is pink because of the sunset …
Few words about me. I’m Hanna and I came to this family when I was only about 5 weeks old. Nero, my hero, found me from the last corner in his garden, thrown there, alone late in the evening. I was so scared! But then I saw how nice Nero was and he took care of me. Since then he is my hero and I think he’s my brother, even he’s not really. It was 9 years ago. As I don’t know when my birthday is, I celebrate it always in that day, when Nero found me. This blog is Nero’s so I asked him to pose front of this quilt, too. Nero is half Belgian- and half German Shephard and I think he is the most handsome guy!
