REMEMBERING BEATRIX POTTER QUILT

I have never out grown my enjoyment of Beatrix Potter’s stories ( https://www.peterrabbit.com/the-23-original-tales/ ). I remember as a child being fascinated by her beautiful illustrations. When I found this cute border fabric of her storybook characters, it just had to go home with me. This colorful fabric would be in my stash whenever I needed it for a project. It would make a cute and cuddly baby quilt.

Quilt made from Beatrix Potter  border fabric and  coordinating strips of other fabric.

This was a fun quilt to make with the Beatrix Potter border print and strips of coordinating fabrics that I pulled from my stash to make a 45″ x 50″ quilt for a friend’s new granddaughter in 2009.

My notes don’t say what size the strips were, but I can say that I just played with various size strips of scrap fabric until I figured out the right size of borders and strips.  All machine pieced.

Batting was polyester, and the back was a plain pink cotton.

It was machine quilted by RLM in a all over pattern of loops.
