Made with love.....



  

Just a super quick post to share Mum's little lap quilt, although I should really call it a knee quilt, it measures just 27" square, but it is just the right size for her and what she wanted it for.  I wanted it to be extra pretty so I added some cotton lace to the edge before sewing the binding.  Wouldn't something similar look lovely on a dolls quilt.  I can not say just how much I love the binding, diagonal stripes....sigh!!! Maybe on my next quilty project I should do something different to stripes, but then again......

I also wanted to let you know that I had not forgotten about my promise to share how I make my easy peasy little tote bags.  I rustled this one up over the weekend and I've taken lots of photo's, so as soon as I've got them in to some sort of order I'll publish a little tutorial........


I hope that you're having a great week, back soon!

  8. How do you manage to take one beautiful quilt and then make it even more stunning? You clever gal, that tiny detail of the lace along the binding is just out of this world! I might ask for some advice for my next quilt, I'd love to try that...and I'll join the queue for that patchwork bag, love it love it love it! :-) Chrissie x

  11. That quilt is just beautiful, it really is. I adore the striped binding - it reminds me of candy cane for some reason - and think it pulls everything together so nicely. Lovely fabrics, lovely colours - you are so good at this! x
