From baby quilts to king sized quilts and blankets in between

I am making this a picture heavy post, I've got lots to show this month! 

A sweet little baby quilt has wiggled it's way into the shop this evening 
 Actually if I'm being pedantic it is a blanket not a quilt as it has no wadding just a patchwork top and this pretty pink flannel quilted together and bound. 

After some of the finishes I've had so far this year I think I just needed a straight forward make and this really just fit the bill! I'm chuffed to bits with how it's turned out.

If you follow me over on flickr you may well have seen this crochet blanket ever so slowly growing. One of the things I really enjoy about crochet is that you can pick it up and put it down whenever you fancy and this has been no exception. 

I still have a few more colours to add but it's already being used to snuggle under while we're watching movies on an evening.

This next one is my giant star quilt, I have no idea who to give the credit to for this pattern as I've seen a few of them around blogland but both Katy and a woman on a rocket cycle  have similar ones and equally provide inspiration! 

Quilting close up. I think this crinkled up perfectly and has soooo much texture.

Random arty iphone photo :)

I do really love this fabric collection, its been out of print for ages now unfortunately or I'd be snapping more of it up.
I like this quilt so much it's staying right here with us :) 

And lastly for today is my second Bloom quilt, thrown over my bed to get pics as it's a Big Boy at just over king size

and two pillow case sets that were made to go with, I didn't remember to take photos of the white ones sewn up but you get the idea :) 

These went off the their new home on Monday so should be in their new house by now :) 

The rest of my evening shall be spent with this stitch ripper and some terrible tension quilting, I have ignored this quilt for over a year because I couldn't face ripping this out after my old machine decided it  didn't want to free motion quilt any more

wish me luck! 


  1. Gotta love a good giant star! I can't remember where the craze started either, but I just worked out my own measurements to fit the fabric I had (FQs, cut rather wonkily!)

  2. Your quilts are lovely, love the bloom pillow cases too. Hate that FMQ unpicking, just make sure there's a good movie on :)
