Created this small cot quilt during the weekend for my lovely workmate, Aleisha Schrader, who is expecting a new baby in May.
She was keen for a black/white/grey/navy/mint mix, in a modern style.
I cut out the fabrics on Friday evening and spent Saturday sewing it all together while watching an episode of Grey's Anatomy and then all ten (half hour) episodes of the new second series of one of my favourite Netflix shows 'Santa Clarita Diet' (starring Drew Barrymore), so it was about an eight hour quilt.
I used an all over, large stipple for the quilting, with a light grey thread on the top and a navy on the back. The dark fabrics are deep blue or charcoal (but look more like black in the photos).

It measures 36.5" x 42.5" and is backed by a Riley Blake flannel. I bought some of the fabrics from Fabric Fixation and used others from my stash.
