whoopsy, missed a day already... mae is teething and had her six month immunisation yesterday so i was basically juggling and trying to teach baxter how to jump through hoops to keep her happy all day. note to self: remember to schedule immunisation for later in the day next time, leaving less hours of grizzly baby before bedtime. once i got her to bed all i wanted to do was jump straight onto the sewing machine to work on the queen/king quilt that i finally basted on the weekend so the computer got a miss.
this is the pram quilt that i made for mae by randomly piecing together scraps from my stash in pinks and blues. it's my first completed freeform patchwork top and i quilted it up with a square grid pattern. i have to admit, i'm completely in love with this little blanket, it came out so much better than i had even hoped. i love taking quilts out of the dryer that first time and seeing them as they are meant to be, crinkly, soft and warm. it's my favourite part of quilting, and i'm pretty fond of all the parts (remind me of this later tonight when i spend another 3 hours machine quilting the queen/king quilt).
