My new favourite quilt!

This is my entry into the Scrap Quilt category of Blogger's Quilt Festival


I have been making this quilt for a very long time.  It is from Crazy Mom Quilts 9 patch a day quilt. Every time I made a quilt I used the scraps to make 9 patches.  I love it because it reminds me of lots of quilts I have made and given away like this one and this one and this one.


I decided that being 8 and a half months pregnant was the perfect time to sash, baste and quilt a 66" x 90"quilt!  In fact I finished machine sewing the binding on to the front half an hour before I went into labour.


I've been hand sewing the binding on in 10 minute gaps between baby feeding and cuddling and a trip to the mother in law's garden at the weekend provided the perfect photo backdrop.
