I'm rather behind...

I'm horribly behind with blog posting, something which me stepdaughter likes to remind me about... Hey ho. sorry folks. I blame Pinterest where I keep finding lots of ways of wasting time while I marvel at the taste, creativity and imaginations of people all over the world.

I also blame knitting - it is so much easier to sit watching TV while knitting rather than clear the kitchen table for every meal. However, there are some projects which have been finished. Mostly for babies - I just love making baby quilts.

Above is the front and back of a quilt for baby Lizzie. I don't often use panel fabric - I have had a half metre length with these panels of mother and baby animals for several years without really knowing how to use it. However, I pulled out all my bright fabrics with spots, stripes and hearts and started playing. I still have 4 more (different) panels left from this fabric, so I may just make another of these.

For some reason, blogger isn't letting me add any more pictures, so further catching up will have to wait, sadly.

Let's hope that June's weather for North East Scotland is a substantial improvement on May. Happy Sewing everyone!

Hi Kate
Tracked you down via Lorna- thanks for comment on my blog, have now obviously discovered yours - is there a bigger pic of your "Crest of a Wave" quilt - it looks fabulous.

Thanks Sheila! Sorry I was anonymous, Google was playing up. I don't have a bigger picture of Crest of a Wave on the blog - I'll have to add one! I made that many years ago now, round about the Millennium now! It was exhibited at the Scottish Quilt Championships in Perth and won third prize in the geometric category.
