Princess and the Pea - Quilt and Growth Chart

When my baby girl was born, my Mum had set a bit of a precedence with the Jack and the Bean Stalk growth chart she'd made for my son (see here). In true Big Mama style, she came out with this wondrous pair: matching Princess and the Pea cot quilt and growth chart. I had some input into the colour scheme but essentially this is all Big Mama's design and work. She has incorporated some machine embroidery to do Aimee's name and birth details but the majority is appliqué with free motion quilting. As is usual, I don't think the photos do the beautiful quilting justice so you'll just have to take my word for it. 

I love the thought of Aimee snuggling under this gorgeous quilt, all warm in her cot. These are true works of art and pieces I'm hoping Aimee will keep for years to come. I just wish she had kept the pattern pieces from the appliqué! I think there'd totally be a market there.

  1. Surprise. I did create a pattern for the Growth Chart and it's available on craftsy.com.
