It’s Jayne’s Birthday today and she got a quilted piece from me! This lap quilt in shades of blue. Over the years I have given her table runners and a bag and now this lap quilt so I joked that I will work my way round eventually to making her a bed quilt!!! She loved it.
DH is helping by holding the quilt up and Treacle got in on the act too!
A closer look at the flowers.
The back is a faint blue stripe.
Whenever I take pictures of a finished quilt it is either late at night and I need to wrap it to give to the recipient or the weather is dreadful and I can’t take the pictures outside!!! I have three on the go at the moment so I will try and plan to take the pictures outside and hopefully they will be better!!!
The pattern I used for this quilt is great as it goes together well and I think looks great when it is finished and is my “Go To” pattern for baby quilts or when I need to make something quickly.
I am a fan of blue and white quilts as I think they look very clean, similar to red and white quilts. In fact I need to get some more bright white fabric as I seem to use quite a bit of it.
Sunday and last night I finished getting our friends’ 50th Wedding Anniversary quilt cut out and have started chain piecing the squares together. I need to sandwich and pin the baby quilt so I can get that quilted and still need to quilt our summer quilt. This Saturday is supposed to be a rainy day so will probably spend the day quilting.
Happy Birthday Jayne!
I hope you are having a Thrilling Tuesday.
Hugs, Susie xx
