another small quilt




red & aqua for the yet to be born bubba of a colleague




I'm working on lots of things just now so it was a good feeling to sew the binding on this little quilt

confession time

I basted it using a total of 4 saftey pins.
the rest of my pins are otherwise engaged holding together many WIP
knowing there were no pins to be had I used a basting spray that I had bought but not used since my early quilting days
it worked like a charm

Bag progress

the (insert foul language here ) bag (see last post) , is coming along kicking & screaming
this pattern is very detailed but has many pieces with similar labels
lets just say I have really struggled with this
lets hope there is a picture of the finished item next post





one by one my large pile of WIP are being unfolded & quilted
I have been pulling out fabric that has lived with me far too long
backing for this & the baby quilt was found on the shelves

Love the baby quilt, Lorraine. So cheery.

I am now a bit concerned about the AB messenger bag. It may have to stay in the pile of unused patterns I have accumulated. I wanted an easy (though stylish) alternative to the standard black laptop bag. Oh well.

Although a tedious task...finishing those long term projects is always a great feeling!

I love red and aqua and continually look for an excuse to make something in it. Totally love yours.

Cute! If you feel like making any more small quilts, then I know of a couple of babies you can quilt for! One Girl who is due in a couple of days, and one unknown due in a month! The girl's quilt might help with work prospects in the future if you know what I mean!
