Child's Play - Kohana is now Complete

I present to you Kohana:

This quilt is based on my Child's Play pattern is for a very special little girl: Kohana.

The front of the quilt is designed to showcase a fabric in the larger rectangular area. For this quilt the showcase fabric is Kokka Trefle-Little Miss that I got from Fabricworm a little while back.

This is a very lovely 3 layered fabric with a whimsical design. I love the simplicity and playfulness of the Little Miss as she sits with a background of beautiful tulips and daisies.

The compliment Little Miss I used a variety of cotton prints - some of which I will showcase on my Fabric Love #2 post coming up.

One of my favorite elements in this quilt is the binding - Barbara Jones Summertime Pin Dots Steel. I love the way it goes with the reds in the quilt :).

For the back of the quilt I chose a completely different fabric:

Sorry I forgot which fabric this was and used it before I had a chance to write it down... Here's a look a glimpse of the front of the quilt with the back - side by side.

I thought the slight contrast of the front and back played very well together. The whole quilt is very pretty and I really enjoyed making it. Hopefully Kohana will enjoy for years to come :).

What a pretty quilt! The colours are so so soft.

Erin said...

I'm visiting from Coastal Charm and I'm sure glad I did! This is such a lovely quilt--the simple patchwork is striking. And that quilting along each edge of the patchwork adds such nice detail. I'm hoping to try my hand at quilting this year so I'll be back for more inspiration. :)
