Nearly there....

There is always too much going on in December and this year is no exception....  I have been very very busy with work and everything else on top. I have also worked a lot on one of my WIP and I am so pleased that I am nearly there.

Our lovely childminder is sadly retiring this week (she had told us about 18 months ago but I have been in denial until really recently just because she is brilliant). Anyway, when I started the Farm Girl Quilt in the spring, I knew I wanted to make it for her. And I initially did well with the first few blocks and then completely fell off track. With 6 blocks when I needed 30 for the quilt I wanted to make, there was some serious catch up to do!

So I worked through the blocks in the last few weeks and finally made my last block this week-end. The quilt top was assembled by Monday night and I quilted it yesterday with a lovely flower pattern inspired by The Inbox Jaunt.

So here it is a WIP that I need to turn into a finish this week.... Just the binding to hand sew now.


I must admit I love how this quilt has turned out and it has so many special memento for our childminder, I hope she will like it. Hopefully I will blog about the finished quilt in the next few days...

  4. What an amazing gift for your childminder. She certainly must be very special because this quilt is so pretty! I would have a hard time giving it up! Love the quilting...

  5. I love the bright colours and I'm sure the recipient will too, and appreciate the thoughtfulness every time she snuggles under it
