Quilted Ikea Crib Duvet Cover: Fabler Groda
With my last pregnancy I bought this totally adorable duvet cover, Fabler Groda from Ikea. I have an insert for it, but that just wasn't good enough. I wanted to try quilting it. I guess its because quilting is an American tradition. Here's a somewhat of a tutorial if you want to try this too.
So, I put some quilt batting inside. Just so you know, I really don't know anything about quilting. I've never done it before, so I just kind of made this all up. Experienced quilters have my permission to laugh at me now. Okay, at this point sewing around all four edges might be a good idea.
I made a heart template out of junk mail to fit over the image of the tonguing frogs.
You have to pin down the template real good and carefully follow around edge.
To quilt the blanket, I carefully sewed vertical lines down the length of the quilt. My quilt turned out kind of crooked, but its still pretty cute.
