Nine Patch Update

I have been using up the scraps from my recent quilts and bags to make Nine Patches.

Lots more to go!

My first order!

Not really an order - my Mum asked if I would make some coasters for her friend whose 40th Ruby Wedding Anniversary was earlier this month.

I made 8 of these from a Moda Sweet Jelly Roll.

Millie Moon Quilt Finished

I finally finished this quilt, it took me ages to sew the binding on, mostly because I kept getting distracted with other things!  The back is an Amy Butler print (as you can see I didn't try and match it when I pieced the back) and the binding is my current favourite Micheal Miller polka dot.  I called it Millie Moon because that's the name of the shop where I took the class to make it.

Twin Girl Quilts

I have had a plan for this stack of fabric for ages - mini pram quilts for a colleague at work who had twin girls at the end of December.  Luckily for me I couldn't go to see her until last week which gave me plenty of time to turn it into these quilts.  The light is really bad so the colours haven't come out great.  It had been pouring with rain for a few days so I had to take the pictures inside before I gave the quilts away.  The fabrics are mostly Tanya Whelan with a little Michael Miller and a little "I don't know the name or designer!"

Both the backs are this heart fabric from Ikea with quilting (almost) in the ditch and chocolate brown polka dot binding.
