My near neighbours just had a tiny baby boy. What a cutie he is. Dad is Turkish and Mum is Indonesian. I thought I'd have a go at my first quilt since my shoulder replacement. Something simple as I knew I would be slow. I chose some bright red fabric with little robots on it and a navy and white stripe for contrast. The binding was done in my most favoured scrappy pattern (see Picture 2), a great way of using up smaller pieces of leftover fabric which also looks good. I finished with my usual simply hand-embroidered label.

Laurie's Quilt was done in a series of coordinating batik prints which I bought in the U.S. The main block had 17 pieces in it which extended the time for making it. The supporting block was an hourglass block, one of my fav blocks.

Its been a while since I posted. That's because I have had knee replacement surgery in October with major physio following. For my hospital stay I took lots of handsewing sewing to do and managed to complete some applique that has been hanging around for a couple of years.

Last weekend I made a pincushion from a couple of leftover friendship star blocks, a needlebook from some Laurel Burch cat fabric and a mug bag from a pretty lavender print. Time to get back to the bigger projects soon though. Ive had a good bit of fun putting these small things together.
