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 :).
