Make a sweet cot quilt and matching cushion featuring appliqué, embroidery and more than 300 Suffolk puffs with Tita Leach’s quilt pattern, which is sure to become a treasured family heirloom to welcome a new baby.
Detailed step-by-step instructions with lots of clear diagrams and close-up photographs will make completing this project a breeze, and it’s a lot of fun
Three-dimensional leaves and flowers are made using several different techniques for added interest
Padding the bees and butterflies raises them from the surface of the quilt for a sculptured effect, but following Tita’s instructions will show you how easy this is
Embellish with easy running stitch and colonial knot embroidery stitches
Instructions are provided for needleturn appliqué, but they can be easily adapted to suit a range of alternative methods
This quilt and cushion set makes a great gift for a newborn baby but would also make a nice wallhanging quilt or lap quilt
There’s quite a lot of work in this project, but none of it is particularly difficult, so this project is great for a crafter with intermediate skills who wants to make something very special
