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.

Red and Cream quilt at Christmas time, not for Christmas!

The lovely Ann from Periwinkle Patchwork gave me this book back in May.  I have read it several times and changed my mind about which quilt...
