Quilting Quilting Quilting

I have been busy hand quilting over the last few weeks so there hasn't been much to show.
I have worked on my Jo Morton Quilt and I have put together by baby quilt that I showed you the pink blocks for a while ago. It is all in one piece and almost quilted. So if you have been wondering what I was up too that is it.

This is a variation on a pattern that we have at the shop - Days in Provence. As you can probably see from the photo there are still pins in it as I have to quilt the borders and around 
the animals in the stitcheries yet.

I spent the long weekend in Wellington with family and had lots of time to sit and quilt and chat, 
so this baby quilt made really good progress.

We also got to meet the baby the quilt is for. She was born early so is in the prem ward at the hospital for a wee while, so of course I had to send her one of our Little Quilts. Luckily I still had the one that I made for the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge so that got sent off to Wellington a few weeks ago. Go back to my 7 April Blog post to see the quilt. This is it on baby in hospital.

And to top it all off this little quilt won the Auckland Modern Quilt Guild Challenge - how exciting was that - it is my first quilt to win a  first prize. So thank you to all those  who voted for it on-line.


  1. I just want to nuzzle that wee baby - looks so cute tucked up under that pretty quilt.

  2. Fancy, that baby is only a few weeks old and owns 2 (nearly) quilts. She looks so lovely and cozy - what a lovely mop of hair she has
