Pyjama Babies No 1

The first of the Pyjama Babies quilts is finished and will be given to the nanna-to-be in a week or so.  I hope she likes it.


I used the white Little Apples fabric with tortoises, snails and apples for the backing - it really is sweet.


 

Diann and I have each made another Sylvia's Bridal Sampler block, "Windblown Squares" - I think it's our first for this year.


On Wednesday I had the most enjoyable day out with 3 friends - we visited a few patchwork shops a bit further away from home, including the lovely Steph's in Moruya and My Patch in Milton.  Hadn't been to My Patch before  it's a beautiful shop; the owner even re-opened the shop for us after closing.  I bought a few goodies here and there including a pattern for this quilt.


The pattern uses either a layer cake or fat eighths so I adjusted it to suit a jelly roll (plus background) and I was able to cut enough strips from my Fig Tree stash.  Not sure if that's a good thing, saying that I have so much Fig Tree fabric (and I didn't cut into my Breakfast at Tiffany's or Fig and Plum fabrics).  Some of the very last pieces of favourites will be in this quilt.  I really like the optical illusion these blocks create as each block is 10-1/2" square (not a rectangle).

Our on-line group has a swap opening tonight.  My parcel arrived yesterday from Sarah.

Haven't opened it yet - waiting very patiently for tonight.

Have a look at my friend Bec's blog - she has been finishing off a huge number of quilts and other goodies - really lovely.  I blame Bec for my Fig Tree fabric stash :).
