I made this quilt last year and then excitedly sent it off to Australian Homespun magazine where it appeared in their February edition, along with a feature profile of me. Now that a few months have passed I'm pleased to release the pattern to you. The magazine changed the name of the quilt to "Blowing in the Wind", but I've decided to revert to it's original name of "Baby Mobile" - just because it describes it so well.
The amazing fabrics from Australian designers Saffron Craig and Sprout Design really make this quilt. It was my husband's idea to put all the red owls at the bottom of the drops, and I think it looks great that way.
I hand quilted it while camping, and it came together surprisingly quickly.
The magazine asked for a girly version (which was less fussy cut), and it was great to have a good excuse to squeeze in some more quilt making! I free motion quilted the background and added a little hand quilting to the borders. This isn't the best photo but you get the idea. Pink and grey go so well don't you think.
I have some left over scraps to give away, enough to kick-start your own Baby Mobile quilt - some of them are very hard to find! Just leave a comment telling what fabric you think would look good in a Baby Mobile quilt. The winner will be chosen on the weekend (when I have a moment) and they can decide on the boy or girl scrap pack as well as recieving the pattern ofcourse.
