Max & Whiskers Quilt Top


Last couple of days I have been working on the quilt top for my niece's baby, due mid December. Matt & Jo don't want to know the sex of their little bundle, so I am playing it safe and making 2 baby quilts.

This one is Max & Whiskers by Moda (of course) hehehehe. If they have a little boy, I'll give them this quilt.

I used 35 charm squares and "Bleached White" colour number 9900-97 (Moda solids) for the sashing. The little 1 inch border is "Golden Rod" colour number "81" (Moda solids) and the 5 inch border is one of the Max & Whiskers range.

All the fabric is cut for the little girl quilt. I didn't have a charm pack of Birdie, so I spent an while cutting 5 in squares. Yes I find cutting fabric relaxing, do you?? At some stage soon I'll start piecing this quilt top together.

Then I need to buy some more wadding (good old 20% at Spotty) and I was thinking a baby flannel for the backing...so its soft against the baby.

I'll be all set for when bub arrives.

Breast Of Friends Block 7


This morning I put the yellow border on block 7 of the Breast Of Friends.

When I started this quilt I wasn't very good at needle turn and chose
to use blanket stitch. I have decided to continue with this style on the blocks by Rosalie Quinlan.

Lovely little block and very nice to make after block six, as that was a very challenging block.

I picked out a bright yellow fabric for the border, to bring out the yellow in the flower.
