Lily pads and stacks of farm animals…

I have been busy with some new quilts. Do you remember the lily pad quilt that I did, well originally that was going to be a set, cot bumper etc. The filling of the bumper was quite expensive and I wouldn’t have made the money back on it, so I turned it into a quilt. Its the same design, just a slightly different layout.

The backing and the binding is the same as the 1st quilt.

The next quilt is a top that my Gran sent down with some fabric. Its a stack of farm animals. I had read in one of my new quilting books about quilting by outlining, and I wanted to try it. I thought that this would be a perfect quilt to try it on.

You can see the pattern very clearly on the back.

I am also working on a quilt for hubby and myself. Its called Le Moyne Star.

I will send progress pics as I go on.

Speak soon


Baby H’s Quilt

I have been working on this quilt for a while now.It has taken awhile as I have been waiting for fabric to arrive that I have ordered from the internet.

There is also fabric that has been sent by my Mum and my Gran.

I have bought fabrics with Thomas the Tank engine, Bob the Builder, Nemo, then fabrics with fish, cars, cats, dogs, stars. You name it, its in there. I wanted him to be able to search and find things. I have seen a similar idea and its called an ‘I Spy Quilt’. So there you go, that’s what it is called.

I am not sure if you can see this very clearly, but it’s bright and colourful. Baby H keeps saying “Nice!!” So I think that he likes it.

I have had a new machine so I have embroidered his name on it. It’s quite large, so should last him a few years. I could probably fit under it.

I hope that you have all had a great Christmas and a happy new year. Wishing you all the very best and hope that you get what you wish for…
