Really easy BUT I got only one fabric AND a bundle to make a specific quilt. And here we have the problem: the bundle is absolutely not mine (big flowers) and there was no pattern! Just a little tiny note what you have to buy extra and where to get the pattern. I do not tell you that it was very expensive and the minimum I would ask for spending so much money is a sheet with cutting instructions. There was nothing!!! So the bundle was put in the corner until a short time before Christmas when I decided to make my mother a birthday present. As I already made trip along blocks I thought that might not be that hard to figure out a whole quilt. I sat down and did some maths (I love that part) and started cutting and sewing. The first block came together really easy and it was faster than expected. I used some left overs of the squares to make a pillow with the kids.
I have to say the kids really had fun putting the stamp pad all over the hands. I was surprised the color war so soft on the fabric. So back to the quilt. The blue fabric should build the diamond and the border and this is how it looks like...
I have to be honest and the colors are amazing. Absolutely vibrant and stunning. I also admit the green is really one of my favorites. So if you ask now why this quilt got its name? The blue fabric is called Cabbage and it is a cabbage field in blue and green.
I am not sure if my mum would be impressed if I tell her these are not roses in blue and green so I just do not do so! As I wanted to have a reflection of all the colors used I made a scrappy binding and I love it. It really rounds up the whole quilt.
Together with the blue border it is perfect. For the back I again used a fluffy blanket. I wanted to giver her something to cuddle into as she is always complaining about the cold weather. She is most of the time in the living room and the huge window lets the cold in especially in winter time. So now she has her own quilt to warm her up.
Nine days after the birthday the bundle now is finished to travel to Austria. She does not know that I sew and she has no clue that there is a parcel now with birthday cards from the kids traveling to her. I hope she will love it. My girl does ;)
