Since I finished my 'darling buds of may' wall-hanging I haven't ben idle, although I don't seem to have too much to show for it. I continue to be surrounded by pregnant tummies and have been making a baby quilt for a colleague's daughter. (Poor girl, she's already had an ectopic pregnancy, so everyone is extra delighted this time around.)
I have nearly finished the top, just a bit more embroidery to do. The pattern is one from 'Quiltmaker' and was very straighforward to make. I bought new fabric for the centre of the quilt (I have loads of fat quarters - mainly with bits cut out! - but little yardage) and otherwise have used stash fabric. If the sun was shining, you would be able to see how pretty it is!
Another dark picture, but these are free-cut stars a la Gwen Marston. In fact, the quilt is going to be pretty much a copy of one in her new book 'Liberated Quiltmaking 2'. I have been able to use some gorgeous Kaffe Fassett fabrics I have had for ages, including a pack of charm squares which goodness only knows why I bought! I need 6 more stars then I will make it up, with plain cream borders. Lots of room for quilting on this one. It will be a present for a friend who has been through a tough time recently.
