Hi all, I have been truly inspired by all the fabulous quilts esp the ones featuring white, so had to have a bash at making one myself.
Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, far too much puckering and wonkey squares for my liking, but I kept telling myself, some small child wont care about mistakes, will just like a warm quilt with colours.
I dont have any grandchildren as yet, but would like to get in practise for when I do  Grin
Oh and the Marco Polo referance......my partners name is Mark, and when I am looking for him around the house I always play Marco!............Polo!........which I find incredibly funny, oddly he doesnt?
Maybe its just me Grin
I prefer it to calling out, Mark, Mark, when I think I sound like a dog with a lisp...........
Anyway, one one side of the quilt is a Monkey calling "Marco", and on the other side is a Monkey calling " Polo", I near fell off the couch laughing when I found this in a pack of squares I bought. Hehe!
Hope you enjoy, comments and suggestions welcome.
Oh and I splashed out and tried cotton wadding, oh what a joy it is to both work with and the feel of the finished quilt.

ps, this has been washed and dried to give it that "aged" look.

I can see your pictures and it is a great quilt.  And I so understand the "Mark, Mark" reference,  I will try "Marco" instead of "Darrrrlinggggg???"

Yes, I originally posted with no pics, realised and then had to quickly add the pics, I was having a moment!

How fun!  You're right, sometimes fun fabrics and a warm cuddly blanket are all you need.
