I am so excited to show you a sneak peek of Happy Quilts, which is a really fun book by Antonie Alexander. It features ten ahh-inspiring, kid themed quilts and coordinating soft toys that your children will adore.
If you have children or grandchildren and are looking for fun quilts that they will love then Happy Quilts is the perfect book for you. They will even get the added bonus of having a matching soft toy to go with it. Loveable softies from the quilt designs can be made from matching fabrics so that they look as if they’ve jumped out of the quilts themselves. Each quilt is a combination of piecing and appliqué with directions suited to beginners or intermediate quilters. The designs are all eye-catching and bright, but you can choose your own colour scheme from soft pastels to graphic combinations of reds, whites greys and blacks.
Let’s look at what’s inside shall we?
The book features ten super fun quits such as a delightful Tiny Princess quilt with matching soft toys. Perhaps your little one will have a favourite princess from the quilt you could create the matching softie for. The Wild Things quilt, left middle, is full of monsters pulling funny faces that your own little monster will love to copy! Deep Blue Sea Mermaid and Mermen soft toys are great for your water-babies and the quilt full of fish finishes off the theme nicely. There is also Snuggle Bear soft toy with a cute matching quilt that could be easily adapted for a boy, girl or particular colour scheme. There are between 15 and 20 softs toys all together in the book. These can be easily customised depending on which part of the quilt you would like to bring to life.
Quilters will enjoy the satisfaction of creating something totally unique that’s leaps and bounds above mass-produced bedding. Whether their room theme is dolls or robots, dolphins or dinosaurs, Happy Quilts has crafters covered.
