When I started thinking about babies, my first thought was of rainbows, which lead to drunkards path blocks, and a tutorial I had seen not so long ago on Dining Room Empire's blog (naptimequilter.blogspot.com). So, I give you:
"Rainbows and Butterflys"
|I used the remains of the batik jelly roll I used for my nephews cot quilt to create both the rainbows/butterflys and border. A few leftover bits of white on white for the background.|
|A bit of a fun and funky backing... one of Nadia's fabric choices left cluttering up my stash.|
I've got it hanging on the line and will post it off tomorrow, to hopefully arrive before next Tuesday.
In other news, I've spent quite a bit of time cleaning up my quilting space and reorganising stash, storage, threads and all the bits in between. As Nadia and I share space... we now have better defined areas so I won't keep taking over her space. Although, sometimes she does take over my space too.
I've also been battling away at the ever increasing pile of washing requiring folding. It just never seems to end. However, fingers crossed that I should get the last bit done today... knowing that will only last until the next load comes in... and that there are already piles of dirty washing hovering...
A few more small units have been constructed towards the March Swoon block... but all in all, a pretty poor effort to date. With school holidays looming from the end of the week, I am hoping that some quality quilting time will improve matters on the BOM front and it would be nice to not only get April's blocks completed, perhaps even catch up with the March ones??
