Ok, so I was waiting until Anika was born to post anything on the projects I did for her nursery as I didn't want to reveal her gender-to-be. Now you know, I can show you! The first project is the bunting. The colour scheme of Anika's room is baby blue and fire engine red with a little bit of pink. I went shopping at my favourite quilting fabric shop and fell in love with the Kaffe Fassett range. The colours are so vibrant and the patterns just delicious! I can't stand the bland pastels that are so often found in nurseries! I bought fat quarters of 14 different conmplementing fabrics, made a template for the bunting and started cutting and sewing. It took only 2 days (one to make the flags and another to sew them together onto the bias binding. It was so easy! What do you think?

I have the bunting hanging across the window as there are no drapes. It adds interest to an otherwise very dull wall.

Later I will show more pictures of other projects I did for her nursery: embroidery, painting and fabric birds.
