Chocolate and Strawberries

Mmmm I hear you say. Well I think so!!

I was asked if I could make some "real" patchwork baby nursery items in pink and chocolate brown.

I found a selection of Moda fabrics that matched the brief.

After cutting out 200 squares(!!), I cracked on making the crib coverlet, cot bumper and comfort blanket (taggie). Halfway into the project I was asked to make a matching cotbed coverlet for the baby's big sister!!

I found organising the layout and machine piecing definately speeded up the process. They were all backed with pink fleece.

The Taggie
The Bumper
The Cotbed Coverlet

I have some left over fabric so I make a quilt to keep - or even sell (how cheeky am I!!??)


  1. Gorgeous work, I just love patchwork! I admire your skill & patience


  2. I love that colour combination but cutting 200 squares.... wow! How was your back after that mammoth exercise?

  3. Love the patchwork and can appreciate how long it took. The colour scheme is fantastic. I absolutely love it.

  4. I am so pleased with the set. My daughter loves the coverlet but I am tempted to just keep it for new baby. Thank you so much Leah!


  5. So lovely! My favourite colour combination at the moment, I just love what youve done here, great job! Sarah :)

  6. Lovely! Great colour combination.
