First of two cot tops completed today


Wow what a productive day, not only did I achieve some housework (boring but necessary) but I also got the borders on two cot quilts that I started last weekend. This first cot quilt top, attic widows is for a friends first child (boy) who was born nearly three months ago. This quilt just evolved from left over boy novelty squares that came out of a pack of pre cut squares I brought, just so I could get the motorbike fabric...for the requested floor cushion that went missing in the post. So it was nice to put to them to use. Another bonus was that I have never made Attic windows before and despite feeling very uncomfortable about the colour placement and size of prints (thought they might be too big), I am really pleased with the outcome. I hope to get this pinned in the next week, quilting will take a bit longer!

  1. Looks very effective. Novelty prints look great with this block. If you like straight line quilting there is some great ideas over here http://tallgrassprairiestudio.blogspot.com/2009/11/straight-line-quiltinghints-and-tips.html
    I really detest basting especially as I don't have the space or floorboards to do it easily.
