The squares finished at 3", so I managed to get a 24" square finished top, which is the right size for a neo natal top. I am very pleased, but there were left overs and I am trying to get rid of scraps!
Sew I made a little dolls quilt 12" square and quilted it straight away.
I found a scrap of flannel for the back and pieced some wadding left overs. These little quilts give me a lift, because they are quick, scrappy and fun! Who doesn't love hot pink dots!
We were away a week and came home to discover the New Holland Yellow Winged Honeyeaters had nested in my white lavender, right next to the clothes line. The fledglings are very cute, but very close to the ground, so hoping the neighbours cat stays away.
These are fledglings of Eastern Rosella and Crimson Rosella parents (it is unusual for the two varieties to cross breed in the wild), nesting in our purpose built nesting box on the rear of our 1 acre garden. You can see the cuts in the box and wire on the right, so the young can pull themselves up out of the box and peer out the entrance hole. This is purposely built high, so they are strong and feathers matured enough to learn how to fly. Otherwise they play Superman and might not survive. their first flight
Happy quilting Sue.
