This was my second quilt ever. I wanted something special for mine and my bf's first place together. Each fabric has special significance for us as a couple. I have no patience so I did it all by machine. It is king size with around 440 hexagons. I was unemployed at the time so I did it in around 2 months start to finish. After doing all this you'd want to be pretty sure you're not going to break up!
Some examples of the fabric meanings:
London tube map fabric! Reminds us of the fun times we've had on hols there
bf's favourite animal is the polar bear. I cut out the hexagons from the cutest parts of each fabric...it wasted a lot of fabric and was extremely time consuming but it was worth it. You wouldn't want to accidentally separate this family now would you?
I'd seen this fabric floating around online a lot, it's so detailed irl! All the book titles are cat related!
Anyone who has played Katamari Damacy (shout out!) will know that this is Dipp.
Being irish, we enjoy the odd tipple. And what better than a fabric with cat waiters!
I won't bore you with all the soppy fabric meanings, there are more posted on my blog
if you're interested. I got it professionally quilted after saving up for a year. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect design for it, the thread is purple pink gradient too!
