The “Kimono Quilt”

This is a “Kimono Quilt,” or as I like to call it, “A Quilted Snuggie.”

I received this order right before Christmas.  The person who ordered it had seen this quilt style on Etsy.  The person on Etsy who was making them came up with this style.  (http://artandcraftlife.blogspot.com/2012/01/kimono-quilts.html)  It consists of a lap sized quilt with a slit in the middle.  You drape the quilt around you like a robe and it ends up looking a bit like a kimono.

It’s perfect for when you’re curled up on the sofa or laying low at home and want to wear something a bit more stylish than either a robe or Snuggie.  It can also still be used as a lap quilt.  The fabric I chose is from P&B Textiles.  I bought it a little over a year ago to make something for myself.  I fell in love with this fabric.  That combination of grays, blues and reds makes me so stinking happy.  When I got this order I knew in my gut that it needed to be made with this fabric.  Besides, when am I ever going to have time to make something for myself?!  Sad but true.

I hope you like it!
