While I impatiently await our new teardrop, which is due for completion in July, I've been busy learning how to make quilts.
This was the first one, and I think this will come out camping with us. Dreamofcolours - you will recognise some of these fabrics from your first quilt as well!
Then I made this one for a new baby in our extended family:
I made one for one of my daughters (a union jack quilt). She likes it and it looks ok, but I was disappointed with the machine quilting. So with the next one (my most recent quilt) I decided to try hand quilting.
Just finished it, and here it is:
It's not perfect (none of them are, actually). But if I hold out for perfection I think I'll be waiting a long time.
That might be enough quilting for me for a little while. I've really enjoyed doing it. I've learnt that triangles and diamonds are tricky to get smooth, wool batting is nice and warm (and a bit puffy in the end) and there's nothing quite so cute (or as time consuming) as hand stitching.
