This week, and more quilt shots...

We have all been a little sick, the kids have watched too much TV, but I finally got up to date with my baby thank you notes, so one less thing to feel guilty about!   There is of course some ongoing guilt about my fabric stash, which grew after going to the Craft & Quilt Fair last weekend and Bargain Box Fabrics this week - I keep buying fabric for little girl clothes, it seems, and not even for the clothes she needs.  Hoping to have some actually made up soon!

For now, here is the full shot of Strawberry's quilt on the line (on a very sunny day)...

It is actually different (if only in fabric choices) from Mr F's, I think I just need to find something other than the clothesline for showing my quilts in full!

Backing and binding...

Backing again from Spotlight, with Kaffe Fassett spot for the binding.  Like Mr F's, this quilt features essentially all colours (for the kids to point out), but with more pinks and girlie prints.

I am quite happy with the quilt overall, and it will look great opposite Mr F's in the soon to be shared big kid's room, but I am certainly still learning a lot with my quilt-making.  Looking forward to the next quilt which will be for baby boy's cot- poor little thing has had nothing made for him yet!

  1. Beautiful quilt! I love the mix of prints and solids, retro and modern.
