Lots and lots of pictures coming up...you were warned
So it seems I have been doing some finishing amid the shambles that is my routine at the moment...yay!
Feels soooo good to look at these all together and feel like I've accomplished something this week and made some other people happy too...doesn't get any better...two of these have already gone to new homes!
This baby quilt was done so quickly ( 2hrs) that I didn't even get time to take any quilty stats about it.
Eldest son's "Someone Special" has a new nephew arriving any day now and when she saw the other baby quilt come back from the longarmer she fell in love....how could I not offer to make one as a gift??
They were both flying out in a few days to Aussie for 3 weeks so I knew I wouldn't have time to quilt it myself...work, kids blah blah blah...so I quickly text my Quilter and she said sure drop it off 3 day turnaround!!
Machine quilted binding, scrummy chenille backing
And gorgeous hands quilted all over
Too perfect for a wee boy me thinks, last of my Sweetwater Reunion and a little Mormor to round out the primary colours
I couldn't resist a pic of a pile of quilts ready to be bound and snuggled
Binding ready to go
Baby quilt of Triangles that somehow dropped on the floor and got missed from the other Triangle Quilt, so in the spirit of not wasting anything I sewed them together used a skinny white border and had exactly the right amount of Chez Moi by Moda that I have had for far too long...done dusted
And just scrumptious, it's quilted all over in a Fleur de Lis pattern and has softened up beautifully after the dryer
No home as yet for this one
Quilt size 36" x 49"
Little OWB is growing up too fast and obviously observing her Mumma all the time she knows exactly how to turn Lady Muck on even if I switch her off at the wall!! Not even 2 yet...scary
These were early morning photos when wee one was asleep so they are a little bit off in colour.This was purely an exercise in triangle sewing and a colour combo I was stuck on....pink,orange and low volume prints
Once again it washed up beautifully and I love that I used up some of the prints in a scrappy binding...I feel oddly satisfied when a fabric is all gone? Except of course for my must haves then it's PANIC and I must buy more...weird
Finished size is 40" x 63"...also no home as yet
Last but certainly not least the custom baby quilt for Dear Friend's first Grandchild!!! She's only a couple of years older than me but it seems frightening when I have a toddler....AAAAAGH
Mum To Be chose the colours and I really enjoyed pulling from my stash to match her paint chips
I hope she's just as pleased
If you got to the end of this post well done....it was looooong, have a lovely weekend and catch you on Sunday for Fabric stashing....
Linking up with all these lovely peeps
