What's a baby's bedroom without a quilt so I made this tumbler quilt using more of the Rocket Age fabric by October Afternoon for Riley Blake (Rocket Main Blue/Rocket Captain Blue/Rocket Stars Orange), you remember I used it to make these various storage baskets for Oliver's room that I blogged about here and including a tute for the 3 circular baskets.
So this is the quilt I made
It was a very quick make and I got to use my latest quilting tool - a Tumbler Double Strip Ruler by Creative Grids.
Each block measures 4" finished and my finished quilt size is about 50" x 42" but I forgot to measure it once finished so that's very approximate.
I fussy cut some of the fabric images but in the main I didn't worry about it as it would have wasted so much fabric
The quilting thread is Aurifil #4140 - Wedgewood.

My wish for Oliver - "may you always have quilts to keep you warm" x
Not too small - it'll be perfect to snuggle under when he's a little older too.
I love those double track quilting lines.
and rolled shot!
Next I trimmed a couple of hand towels and wash cloths to match.
For now the quilt's folded in Oliver's cot (he's not using it yet as he's still in his crib).
And these are hanging stars I had made by Sharon of Spotty Dog Designs - she's based in England but took my order from the States over Facebook, I paid by Paypal and she shipped to Spain and now they're now hanging in Oliver's room. Super lovely to work with, Sharon makes really great customisable ceramic gifts at incredibly reasonable prices so do take a look at more of her work on here on Facebook.
Check out those storage baskets I made keeping everything close to hand for Mum during nappy changes.
