Fun With Quilts!

Sooooo…it’s been a little manic for the past, let’s say, month? Hospital trips, holidays, a severe asthma attack, and a hen weekend. You know it’s been a lot. However, in-between the madness, I have been pretty creative.

I am super proud of this quilt I’ve been making for my little sister. It’s a little different to a normal quilt as it’s going to be weighted. My sister has autism and she really struggles with getting to sleep. However, like me, she will sleep like a baby with a few heavy blankets. The idea is to have it at 10% your body weight plus a couple of pounds.

Craft Nectar has created an amazing tutorial with diagrams and clear instructions. My Quilt is a little different as I used a patchwork top and wadding, most tutorials recommend a single sheet of fabric with fleece backing.

When this quilt is finished I will more than likely start working on one for myself. I’m going to try and keep up with posting so watch this space…

Thanks for reading

For over a year now I have been on the way to recovery from an eating disorder and depression! One thing that’s helped me a lot is writing down my achievements. To start with it was little more than ‘got dressed’ or ‘ate without feeling anxious’. More recently my accomplishments have been more substantial. Here I will document my bakes, writing, crafts, textiles, gardening and other bits and pieces.
