Pink Minky Cot Quilt

 Another finished cot quilt.  I actually forgot to show you the finished photos of this quilt...I found it while packing boxes and that prompted my memory.
 Again I chose very basic machine quilting, trying to keep it simple and soft.  I used scraps of the body of the quilt, brought the minky for borders and the cute pink/purple dots for binding.  
I then pieced very scrap of flannel fabric I could find for the back.  Its a bit wonky, but they are fun prints and I think its more important that they are cuddly soft then perfect! 
Happy quilting, Sue SA.


Purple Minky Cot Quilt

Finally some quilt photos!  
This cot sized quilt was another stash busting exercise.  I used up left over minky for the backing, my kids are now begging me for lovely, soft on the back of their next quilts : )  
On the front were all the purples I could muster from my stash.  But I have to confess to buying the purple minky for the borders and the binding - a cute purple and pink dot print.  
I machine stitched this very simply and suspect at a later date it might get the better of me and I will add some extra quilting in the center....but definitely after we move house!
 Happy quilting Sue SA.

I found it!

No. 1 excuse for not blogging - I moved my PC and misplaced the cord that connected my camera to my computer.  Please accept my sincere apologies, it will not happen again, I will guard it like my first (and last) born child....promise!
 Life has been busy, in the last month since I posted, we have brought a new house, had a big clean up and sold our existing house.  AND I have resigned from my job.  So I am now in count down mode... how many days of work are left and how many days to pack before we have to move house....did I mention the new house was interstate?
BORING!
Bring on the NEW shiny toy.....much more interesting!
 See what I bought at the Quilt show?  Well the truth is my friend rang me and said she was buying one, so while she was there would I like one too?!  I have only spent the last five years talking about one, so what the heck its only money!  And then I duly drove up to the showgrounds and picked her up out the front, cos this baby is heavy and she had TWO to carry!
 At 6 am this morning I could be found in my sewing room (now filled with packing boxes) doing the ironing.  Yes I made myself iron all the clothes first...then I played!  So your suppose to practise on scrap fabric.  Hmm guess who has already PACKED her scrap fabric!  Yep, my sewing machine hasn't been out for a month, so I figured I wouldn't been needing my scraps!
The other exciting thing to  happen this week is my long arm quilter finished two of my quilts.  So I am going to have to get my poor neglected machine out of the cupboard and sew binding on this weekend.  Ahhh, shucks guess that means I am going to HAVE to also sew up these lovely new shapes!
Happy quilting, Sue
