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.
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 :).
