Baby quilt, Christmas in July & spring??
As quilters we love to make, create & give. A wedding, a birthday, a 'thinking of you' & welcome new baby.
A new grand baby has arrived, what better way to say "I love you", than with a handmade quilt. Made with love, then the new baby will be wrapped in that love & warmth. Christine asked me to quilt this lovely soft welcoming quilt for her. 'Organic' cross hatching was her choice, as was cotton batting. I used a Gunold Variegated thread. Quilt size 47" x 64".
Last week I received my 'Christmas in July' presents from Vicki. A lovely angel bag, Christmas tree shaped oven mitt & Christmasy wallhanging. Thank you Vicki.
My presents went to Ann in Australia (no blog).
Snowman wallhanging, a Birdbrain pattern, stitched using Cottage Garden Thread, hung on a rusty hanger.
A Christmasy hand towel.
Lastly a Christmasy star. This is a Birdhouse pattern. Plus I put some other goodies in her parcel, just because!
As a winter lover I was feeling very ripped off today,as it was so warm! Where is our winter? Spring seems to be springing into my winter!!
