A little while ago a lovely friend of mine had a sweet baby called Charlie. I decided to make a quilt to welcome him to the world and have been a little sidetracked until now. My plan is now to get it done before he starts crawling (so I have some time up my sleeve).
A sweet little cot sized quilt made from the Apple Jack line from Moda.
Cappuccino decided to help during the planning phase.
A little chain piecing and the centre panel was done! So quick, I never knew what I was missing until I tried it, chain piecing saves an bundle of time.
Just in case you thought I had forgotten! (Well I kind of forgot to blog it, but I didnt forget to sew it!)
My first ever Jelly Roll Race Quilt top is done and waiting for a back before I can finish it off.
I am quite pleased – love the colour combo and its a super easy quilt top.
Should be the next to be quilted, and will be good for some straight line quilting practice.
And so on to the next project!
Chevrons are everywhere right now and this is a quick and easy quilt I am piecing up using this tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop http://www.modabakeshop.com/2012/01/patchwork-chevron-quilt.html
Progress so far
And a play with the layout
This will be sit in the UFO pile for a bit, while I wait for my free motion quilting foot to arrive. I’m a little excited to give FMQ a crack!
So being house bound with illness seems to have sped up the binding process significantly this week.
Here are a couple of quick photos taken at home, when I am feeling better I will get outdoors and do a few ‘finally done’ photos.
And one of my blog name sake – just because.
The piecing was mainly done last weekend and the borders added during the week. Its so bright and busy – perfect for bright and busy Master 2.
Just need to finish the pieced back tonight and then I can get onto putting it all together – good thing its a long weekend here!
I had a little time this weekend so I thought I would use one of my ‘just in case’ trimmings packets for a little project I had been meaning to do for a while. I loved the bunting themed pouch from http://justanotherhangup.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/bunting-cosmetic-bag-tutorial.html and I followed the tutorial from the very clever Anna at Noodlehead here http://www.noodle-head.com/2009/10/tutorial-lil-cutie-pouches.html
And here is the result – my new tablet case. Lined with some gorgeous Umbrella Prints Floating Wild Grasses (of course)
Umbrella Prints mixed trimmings pack with Floating Wild Grasses lining and some denim from my stash. I think its all coordinated nicely. I also ironed some fusible fleece to the wrong side of the denim for some cushioning and stability for the applique.
I have been collecting some bright boy themed fabric over the past months and its come time to bust some out and get quilty!
I’m thinking a fence rail style quilt or maybe wonky log cabins. I guess that will be decided when I start cutting. Master 2 approves of the fabric choices which is great.
