Well school holidays are here and so that means I continue sewing a quilt I started last holidays! I have the binding of the Pink and Purple Cathedral Windows quilt all ready to sew down but in the meantime I have dragged this one out to finish the quilt top at least over the next two weeks, It is a baby quilt but at the rate I am going, the baby in question is now 8 months old so I am hoping to have it finished for his 1st birthday present!

I finished the quilt top over the weekend. I'm very happy with how quickly it has come together and how effective it looks. It inspired me to sandwich it immediately and I have already started quilting it since taking these photos this morning.
Windy weather, the build up to the Wet Season is beginning....

I had to get some purple fabric out of the purple fabric draw this weekend and look what I found folded up neatly in a zip lock bag at the back of the drawer? My bocks received from Bee FF 2012.. 2012?? A friend's wife at work has just had their second daughter, I think I will sash it with 1 inch white strips and wolah, baby quilt!

See the little white deer on the cyan background and also the same print in an orange? I have wanted to sew something with this fabric for ages! It's "cutesy woodland folk" which is so not my usual style! So I decided to incorporate it into one of these wonky bento boxes which I have done before with success.
The result was this baby quilt which I finished the binding on this week.
The back was fun to complete as much as the front. A great way to use up those scraps made from cutting the front blocks.
Did my standard up and down texture. Now I have my new thread quilting is a breeze. It is already wrapped up for it's new home.

I finally finished the binding on this green and yellow sort of a wonky picket fence block.
It measures 36 inches long by 19 inches wide.
I had this square floating in the WIP/UFO pile so I used it for the backing.
I am really happy with the texture of the quilting. That Aurifil 50 did wonders! Now it's finished I have it rolled up in my "present stash" draw for that occasion when you suddenly need to gift a table runner.

I finished this quilt on the weekend. It's one of the ones I made on the recent quilting retreat.
I'm happy with the pebble quilting.
Just a row of pebbles but I rotated them in the three blocks.
Lots of threads to tuck away at the end but worth it for the effect,
And to show that photo shoots aren't glamorous in our house, here is the side view of the quilt on display. Now its all rolled up ready for delivery in two weeks,
