Single bed quilt
Another step away from cot quilts came when my great-niece moved into a single bed and requested a new quilt. I decided to use my Japanese stash that I’d bought at a fair a few years before. However I didn’t have enough material for a easy quilt for kids. You just have to love the internet! Fortunately for me I found Japanache online who were extremely helpful.

Sometimes I like to take a break from making cot quilts and make other things such as easy quilts, quilted throws, burp cloths or even stuffed animals. Hellyphant – this was a cool pattern I found at my local quilting shop, designed by Melly & Me. They have some great patterns of all sorts of animals. I see they have tortoises now – very cute! It’s easy to make and not too fiddly and a great way of using up scraps for the ears and the saddle.
