The Oranges and Lemons quilt

Oranges and Lemons quilt pattern by Amanda Ogden
‘Oranges and Lemons’ baby quilt pattern

It is always nice to create a quilt for a particular person. The quilt above, completed this week, was made for a baby called Ruby. Ruby’s mum sent me a photo of a garment which gave me the ‘colour story’ for the quilt and off I went. The quilt has 40 blocks, each with quite a complex pattern as seen in the photo below. Fortunately there are clever ways of putting the block together.

I’d like to share the design (the colours make it equally suitable for a boy or a girl, so it’s a good one to make ahead of time).  I have written a pattern for this quilt which is available on the ‘Sew and Quilt Patterns’ section of this website (click here) and also in my Etsy shop (click here).

Like all my patterns, there is a ‘how-to’ photograph next to each step and you are guided a little at a time through every stage. The pattern has both inches and centimetre measurements. It is designed to be easy to follow: you are not expected to be a quilting expert before you start!

And remaining with warm colours, here’s the artwork for my latest fabric design:

The Leaves of the Trees

The challenge was to design a ‘post-apocalyptic toile'(!), so to see the explanation and to view the design in repeat,  click here.
