This quilt belongs to my Natascha. It was the very first quilt that I designed, a simple patchwork. It was made with quilts, sheets, dresses, and I purchased the lilac and purple fabric new for her. Her favorite color was purple. I wanted an heirloom quilt of her days as a baby and most of the fabrics came from that time. I also made a simple single sham to go with the quilt. The quilt was made for a twin bed, but I like to make my quilts over-sized so they aren't coverlet size. I quilted this on my home sewing machine. I also cheated on the binding, I used curtain tape for it. It is ruffled and she still loves this quilt. She is older now though and her tastes have definitely changed.
