Hello my dear friends! I have finally finished the baby quilt, ‘Baby Stars’ in blue and green!
This quilt shouldn’t have taken so long time to finish … but some times it just happens that they wait and wait and other projects are passing over. In fact I would love to tell you about something else today, but this is now first on the line.
I made the binding yesterday and then tried to take some photos, but the weather was too gloomy. Today I had better luck even it has been changing all the time from cloudy, to small sunshine and then to rain.
We were walking around the garden with Hanna and tried to find new photo scenes. Nero prefered to sit front of the house. He has scratched his toe and I think it hurts a little bit.
This place was once supposed to be for Nero … time before Hanna. We started to make a house and bambou-cover for shadow, we made fence all around … there were ceramic tiles on the roof of his house … we had an idea that he could spend some time here sometimes when he couldn’t be free all around the garden (for example when we know someone is coming or leaving by car).
Perhaps you guessed that Nero said clear and loudly that he is not going to spend even one minute here – alone! Now tiles have been used somewhere else … as well as the fence … now it’s home for the old concrete-mill … who now and then still finds a little work to do. Once hb painted it green to fit better in the bushes!
We haven’t built or fixed anything for a while, but now we make a little work and I catched brush and paint … it felt so great! I wish I could have time to work with wood and paint! But there is always so many things I want to do …
I have made good progress with these solids! I really made an effort today to stop for eating and writing about the ‘Baby Stars’ quilt. I have almost finished new quilt top with these and I want to see how it will look … my table is not big enough to see it well.
But today it is about this baby quilt …
This quilt measures 34″ x 42″.
Square blocks are 8″x 8″ and the big block with four stars is 15,5″ x 15,5″ (before sewing them together).
I have quilted this by hand, using ‘Perle’ cotton n:o 8 in different turquoise, green and blue colours.
Binding is made with blue-white small checked fabric and sewn by machine.
I have took lots of photos during the work and I shall write a pattern for this quilt.
First ‘Baby Stars’ quilt I made, was featured by ‘Quilt Story’! It was a present for a friend and made with orange, green, yellow, turquoise and white. I hope you like this boyish quilt as much as the first one!
Thank you for visiting! I wish you wonderful Sunday and have a great week! Thank you for your sweet comments and I hope to see you soon, because I can’t wait to show your all the colours I have now on my sewing table!
