Betty and I are not the only ones quilting up a storm these days. Anne has finished off the third (yes, three!) of these baby quilts so she's busy getting them quilted and bound so that they are ready by Wednesday. Two will join the two that I've made and go to the Madonna House Gift Shop and the third is for a friend that she used to work with who just had a baby. We used the Sophie Car Seat Quilt pattern from the Moda Bake Shop and just made it bigger, omitting the ties.
It was this adorable backing fabric that was the deciding factor as to how many to make (remember my $5/metre bargoon?). There was enough for three baby quilts, so three it was.
And, it was her quilting on the diagonal that finally convinced me to do a diagonal pattern on the Strippy X quilt.
While she was busy putting the last one together I made lots and lots of mauve dragonfly bias binding from one of the prints that we used in the quilts, so now it's needle and thread time. That will be relaxing sewing and a nice way to spend the weekend because we are in for lots of rain/freezing rain, so no point playing on the roads.....M
