More Cot Quilts

Late last week I put the log cabin quilt aside to cut out some cot quilts.  Seems all my friends are having grandsons.  A couple of weeks ago I bought a fantastic hexagon fabric in teal, aqua, lime green, grey and white so I went hunting through my fabrics for pieces to go with the hexagon fabric and I've made two quilt tops in these colours.

The first one is a design I borrowed from Susan - I saw her quilt top in Instagram and she gave me permission to use her layout.

The second quilt top is based on Cluck Cluck Sew's "Off-Track" pattern - I made the rectangles smaller and shortened the linking block to make it more cot-sized.

A third cot quilt has been cut out using a cute flannel lightweight flannel fabric - the quilt design is called "Retro" from Camille Roskelley's book "Simply Retro" - it's a 12" finished block to very quick and easy to make for a cot quilt.


Hoping to sew these blocks together tonight and add the borders.  I have one more cut out in a lovely pearlised fabric called "Hollywood Sparkle" to make Shoo Fly blocks.

Jenni went to Ikea yesterday and sent a photo of a little shelf unit she thought I might like for the sewing room.

The doll has been moved and the shelf is on the left-hand side now.  Jenni also brought back some white baskets for under the cutting table.

There has also been a little bit of tv-watching crochet - making little granny squares that might be a jacket for Smudgie.

Barb and Mary have posted some photos of their trip to Australia and the classes they taught.  Great photo of Karen.

Those baby quilts are awesome. Great colours and patterns that you've chosen. Your sewing space will soon be just perfect with all the little extras you're adding.

Hello Lynda,

The ladies Grandsons will have the best quilts in the street thanks to you. Great colour combinations in all of them. The crochet looks like a lot of fun.

Happy days.
