This is turning into a rather blog heavy week. There's some stuff I made that I haven't blogged about for all the normal reasons...life, baby, too busy crafting to blog about crafting.
This is the bundle that became Finn's quilt, a little baby boy born way back in Feb (I think?). He is the baby of one of my sister's long time best mates, and a friend of mine too. I was more than happy to make a baby quilt for my sister to give to the new Mama's and bubba. I was given two green Alice in Wonderland themed FQs. They were quite tricky to match out with some coordinating fabrics but i think I did OK in the end. It is backed in the white and green checked flannel - I'm thinking I will back all future baby quilts in flannel...except it gets so hot here in summer.
I went with simple strippy piecing and it was done in no time at all. You will have to take my word for it that I hand quilted it in a clam shell pattern (made my own template that I just traced on as I went) with quilting cotton. There are no images of the finished product cos, umm, I forgot. The pics you see here were taken with my crappy phone. Sorry.*Must try harder*
Saffron Craig's stall at the Sydney quilt show last year and finally got around to stitching them together. They are too cute. My little boy likes to make them go weeeeeee down the slippery dip.
