Straight off the clothesline, freshly washed and dried outside on a beautiful spring-like day - we are going to a wedding at the end of September and this quilt is the present.
I've called the quilt "Sweet" after the fabric range it's made from. I bought the layercake and yellow background from Bec, can't remember where I bought the border fabric from, and the design is from a tutorial on Cluck Cluck Sew's blog.
We had such a wonderful time at the Attestation Ceremony at the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn to see my nephew take his oath as a Policeman. My brother and all his family drove down from Lake Cathie, Mum, aunts, uncles and cousins drove up from the Illawarra. We haven't seen my brother's family for a year and it was fantastic. Mum was able to meet her little great-grand-daughter and spend some time with her great-grandson as well as give her grandson, John, a big hug on his big day. John has wanted to join the police force since he was a little boy - it's a magical day when a dream comes true.
