A quilt for my GD

I seem to have neglected my blog, but we have had my in-laws to stay for five days and the Olympics were great to watch too, so I have kind of been busy. We can't wait now for the Para-Olympics as we have tickets for swimming, cycling and three athletic events with medal ceremonies and the closing ceremony, so we will be off and out for the most part of a week! Exciting times..

And this is what has kept me really busy. Its a quilt made from a jelly roll of Moda's Wildflowers design. It's for my GD to take to Uni
A simple pattern of squares and rectangles but it still took me awhile to make.
I finished the binding last evening sitting out after our BBQ meal in the beautiful warm evening. We have been having such super summer weather of late.

Now I should really do some of my stitching which has been left.. but I think I have the quilting bug and I already have the fabric for my next project!
Happy Days!

Hi Chris,

thanks for your lovely comment on my blog.
The stitcheries you like so much are from a book called Red Home by Natalie Bird. It is a relatively new project.

What a lovely quilt you made for your grand daughter. She will be so pleased!

oh so pretty! Absolutely perfect! I am struggling: I seem to have so many bugs...and not enough hours in the day lol. When bugs produce something as lovely as your quilt then it is a bug worth having rofl

hi Chris Oh I think that Moda jelly roll has worked fab for this quilt. It was nice to make but I agree it took me the best part of three weeks to put together. Still need to add the boarders. :)
