I fly to Brisbane on Friday for a Crafty Weekend with my CraftMad friends :) then from Monday, I am staying with a friend and having a girly holiday, starting with a trip to Australia Zoo for my birthday :) Crafting, Birthday celebrations, wining, dining & shopping and catching up with some old and very dear friends ........... how good is that?!!!!
I have been able to spend some time in the sewing room and made a baby quilt for my husband's niece - I actually bought the fabric shortly after the pregnancy announcement, but took a while to decide on what to make, and then took a while to actually cut into the fabric ........ at $20.00 per metre, I wanted to be sure of what I was doing.
I posted about my fabrics HERE in May 2014 - I actually started cutting on the 19th September 2014 in preparation for the Baby Shower on 28th :)
initial layout - not really what I wanted
this is next layout - I prefer this one
here it is - a complete flimsy
basted ready for quilting
then I experimented with quilting lines (on the PC)
straight down and across
in the ditch
I ended up doing one line of diagonal quilting and not cross hatching it :)
the obligatory quilt binding roll photo :)
the backing was Peter Rabbit
opening quilt :)
it will fit perfectly with the nursery ..... such a relief!
