Keep your fingers crossed …. last time I was here I broke my website and it took 2 hours of tech support to mend it together like new, so I’m a bit nervous.
I spent most of the summer playing, and not completing a huge amount of anything …. but I’ve got back to work in September with the new term, and a pair of little quilts as a nice introduction back into things.
The first was a small cot-bed ‘in memory’ quilt …..
We kept it all fairly simple and straightforward ….. but I just loved all those tartans and used them as the inspiration for the quilting pattern ….
I thought it made a pretty cool trellis effect when it was done …
And so …. all done and dusted and ready to go home 🙂
And on to the next one … a bed runner this time, but from little boy baby clothes ….
loads of gorgeous little details to be included here …. not just the pockets and logos and motifs from favourite clothes, but some additional blocks to make up to incorporate little details like the waistcoat & bow-tie of the vampire onesie and an applique teddy-bear hat.
And some simple but fun tramline quilting in a cheerful yellow
And I think it all comes together in something that will be comfortable and well loved for a long time to come ….
