Inspiration from Cath Kidston

This project has been hanging around for a while and I finally got around to finishing it!Apologies for the awful lighting; it's very dark up here today but I needed a bigger space to display the finished object than I could manage in my studio with its lovely daylight lamp.

I was inspired by the colours that Cath Kidston uses in her styling. I originally started out with lemon yellow and peach in the mix too, but in the end I decided to stick with pale blue, pink, green, white and red.

I added a border of five rounds of the pale blue and a picot edging which gave the blanket slightly fluted appearance.

This blanket will be on its way to a friend next week - happy snuggling!


  1. Wow! It's amazing! What a lucky friend you have.

  2. I love this, I have so much wasted time trying to match colours that go together! may take page out of your book and follow others and just make my own version

  3. Hi Jill, I have just seen this! I am a lucky friend, it's a gorgeous blanket and it has brightened up my lounge sofa :) Even the Molly the rescue dog has taken a liking to it and often snuggles up in a big tight ball and snoozes off on it doing happy sighs. It's beautiful, thank you. Fiona x

    1. I'm so glad you like it! I love to think of my creations living a long and happy life in someone else's home :)
