One fluffy baby quilt and a trip out :)

So once the baby quilt was thrown excitedly into the washing machine yesterday it was announced we were going for a walk down to the beach before our Sunday lunch (It wasn't me that announced it!) 

It was that lovely mix of sunny and cold, but not too cold.

The waves were rocking, I love the sound of crashing waves!

And as anyone that has kids knows we came home with a mountain of beach combed shells pebbles and rocks :)

Once we got home I hauled the quilt out of the wash and got it hung out to dry (Katy I'm seriously thinking on a tumble dryer again!) and now it's all dry and squishy soft I thought I'd better share :D

it's finished at approximately 32"x32" 

The backing and quilting

This one is in my shop

I'm now having a play making some Blythe doll bonnets and capes so should have some to show and tell soon!

Hope you all have a great week :)


  1. The beach looks fabulous! As does the baby quilt!

  2. I thought the whole point of the beach was shell and stone collecting :oD I will suck you back into the tumble drying goodness... ;o)

  3. Sounds like a great day all round - I love your quilt!

  4. I would love to be at the beach right now!
    That little quilt looks very good!

  5. A win- win. I don't know what I like more, collecting stones, sheller sea-glass or how a quilt looks when it is first washed. And yours is a prize.

  6. Looks like the ingredients for a perfect day!!


Chat away - I enjoy reading comments and will respond here or by email :)
