I sewed on the binding so that I could start stitching it down while minding my little sweetheart when her Mum and Dad went out for dinner on Friday night.
Finished it off while watching the ANZAC march and services on Saturday morning. There are so many pale fabrics in this line - they would make great backgrounds. Love the orange peel quilting Karen did - think it's my favourite design. The quilt is approx 50"x59" and shortly will be going to a sweet 2 year old little girl.
Have done as much stitching on Little Chicken Feather as I can before the little one arrives. His name and birth details will then be added to the stitchery before the top is quilted.
Still trying to make a decision on border fabrics.
The weather was pretty miserable for most of Saturday and Sunday - went into the sewing room after I arrived home from Sydney on Saturday and sewed up this little child's quilt while watching some "Gilmore Girls" episodes and then "Gallipoli" - the blocks were cut out and sewn into the 9 patches probaby in 2011. A dear friend bought me an X-block ruler and pattern book for my birthday that year - I made a couple of little quilts at the time. I'll definitely be making more from the book.
Sewed up the backing for this little quilt yesterday morning. I hope to quilt it soon - stitching in the ditch will be enough for this one.
In the afternoon I decided to pin baste the pink Frolic cot quilt
ditch-stitched the rows
These are going to be something special for Miss ChaCha. Going to visit Karen after work today and I'm hoping the Mickey Mouse Frolic quilt is ready to pick up. It was so chilly this morning, I really wanted to stay at home.
