A friend mentioned her two youngest son's liked putting their teddies to bed, so I offered to make them teddy sleeping bags. This was the perfect exercise for using up wadding scraps and some cute novelty prints from my stash.
And when you don't do a good job of the quilting, you just add a bit of Velcro and make a little pillow to hide that bit! I machine stitched the binding both sides, which I never do it on quilts, but it was super quick and worked well. And as another bonus I was able to use some scrap binding!
We enjoyed this Adelaide Cup long weekend at the beach, playing tourist in our own state. We saw some interesting sights, including driving past this quirky house I saw featured on TV...I am a big fan of Grand Designs, but this takes the cake for building head aches I think! The weather was suitably warm to ensure lots of fun was had dodging the waves at the beach.
I even fitted in some hand quilting, not at the beach mind you! I haven't taken a progress shot, but hopefully it will be finished in time for my next post,
happy quilting, Sue SA.
