Beautiful Bugs Playmat or Wall Hanging

Beautiful Bugs Playmat or Wall Hanging
Love this


Nine busy bugs, beetles, butterflies, dragonflies and bees flitter across the sky in this pretty child’s quilt.

The quilt is built up in nine blocks, with each colourful insect appliquéd onto a square of cloud-print sky fabric; strips of bright butterfly-print fabric join the blocks and also create the border. All the bugs are appliquéd with machine blanket stitch in navy blue, which gives the quilt a folk-art feel, and I’ve used navy machine embroidery to create antennae and other details.

The quilt is backed in plain navy blue, and bound in a pretty green print fabric. If you want to use it as a wall hanging, a hidden casing at the top back will hold your own hanging pole – or you can use it as a playmat, or a cot quilt (it’s machine-washable), or all three!

The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a cardboard box (recycled when possible). Hanging pole and fixings are not included.

Size: roughly 33in (84cm) square


Wander round a garden, park, forest or even a beach, and if you look closely you’ll see a myriad insects keeping busy foraging, scouting out the neighbourhood, or maybe even just basking in the sun! These mini-beasts come in all shapes, sizes and colours – and even textures; in this quilt I’ve created my own bug collection.
