Scrappy Itzy Bitzy changing mat made by Laurie

Lauren recently heard she is to be an aunty again soon, she fancied making something useful but also gorgeous. We decided it was time she had a go at scrappy quilting…check out how she did.

Firstly she spent time cutting lots if random 2.5″ squares…lots of jolly colours plus some nice pastels as the sex if the babies not known

Archie the sewing dog “helping”…

Squares cut she sewed lots of strips…randomly. Lauren doesn’t “do” random as a rule as she is a perfectionist so this was the hardest bit lol. She had to pretty much close her eyes too select each square lol

  1. This looks like fun to make, great tutorial!

    Love the bright colors and a wonderful idea. Nice job!

  3. Thanks, choose the brights as not sure on the sex of the baby. Its very easy to do but the corners don’t match very well if you do what I did and not cut all your patches square.

  4. Hi, I’ve nominated you for the Liebester Award. Here’s a link to the post
