Remember this quilt?




I think this would have to be the quickest I have ever made a quilt - it's all been pieced, hand quilted and delivered to a dear little baby boy.

I am really pleased with how it turned out - especially as the only thing I had to buy was the batting! A true scrappy quilt!

I laughed at your description of a "scrappy quilt"...! I know what you mean but I don't think calling it scrappy does it justice.

wow, just lovely -- have you got any pics of the back ? When you do the hand quilting do you do disappearing pen lines first?

I am in absolute awe of your beautiful stash - it is so hard to find lovely fabrics for boys...and yet here they all are without you having to even go out and buy any. Perfect. It looks wonderful, you clever thing. x
