First quilt for 2017! This one had to be a fast one as my sister-in-law is only here from England for 3 weeks. She is about to have a new granddaughter and was ecstatic when I said I would do a quilt for Daisy Mae. Fortunately I had this one half sewn up already and she loved it - so - problem solved! Here are the pictures. Of course it's a simple quilt made of six and a half inch plain blocks which relies on the colours and textures of the fabric rather than any fancy work in the blocks. I tend to do this for baby quilts because they have to be hardwearing and easily machine washable.

There's no doubt about it, scrap quilts will always be my favourite kind of patchwork. There's always a challenge to bring all those disparate scraps together into a pleasing whole.

This is not a good photo of the quilt unfortunately but it's a great one of that queen of cats, Persephone. Persephone needed her own personal quilt of course.

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.
