Another baby quilt/playmat finished ready to gift to a baby boy in New Zealand. He is now a week overdue so I can't embroider the label yet.
Really pleased with this little quilt as I made it from Happy Blocks, an idea I saw a couple of years ago on Cathy's blog Sane Crazy Crumby Quilting. Quick and easy to make, so colourful and perfect for a baby quilt, lots to look at - hence the quilt's title.
All made from stash :
4" novelty squares already cut, leftovers from recent projects.
1.5" strips for sashing, mostly already cut
Backing and binding from stash
Exact sized piece of joined batting which I had pieced ages ago and labelled with its size. Just the ticket for this quilt.
It measures 34" square.
Machine quilted with hand quilting around the inside of each square, using the three colours of Perle thread shown in the photo.
One more quilt to finish before Christmas
Only made the blocks and cut out sashing and cornerstones so far. Not much time for sewing at present - Christmas cards to write and gifts to wrap. Lots of events to attend too!
Better get writing!!
