First Baby Quilt

A quilt.  Complete.  I have finished (well, almost finished) my first baby quilt.  This was quite some piece of work and its down to having had a taster session in quilting last year at Patches in Lowestoft. 

This to me, proves that quilting can be quite expensive as all the animal fat quarters that I purchased mainly from Sew Simple in Norwich were quite expensive but its a shop I can spend hours in as it really does cover just about every single craft you can think of!  On the other hand, passing a fabric shop in Gorleston (sorry, cannot remember the name so cannot link at this time), I decided to pop in and see what fabrics they had available.  Wonderful stuff and extremely affordable!  I had already purchased a little girly type of fabric that I would use for this project, but fell in love the Winny the Pooh fabric which cost only £2 a metre!

To be honest, the quilt I made was taken from this pattern.  Well, it might have taken Leona only a day, but it took me several weeks to make.  Thank you Leona for providing the inspiration for this project.

As usual, just click the pic for a larger image!

Amazingly good value fabric and such fun


Onwards and forwards with the sewing ideas – I have such a wishlist of projects I would like to complete.  I would like to make some things for my kitchen (pan holders) to match the colour of my kitchen walls … I would like to make a few Tilde items.  So much to look forward to.
