Baby Quilt and my blog’s new address


Hello dear friends! I’m back from fishing and with a good catch, I would say!

In fact these fishes I catched in Finland when I was shopping with my friend Leena. I’m so happy I did, because now they were just what I needed. This small quilt goes to a new born baby boy.

Stars were wished and they show well the little sea creatures …

fish fabrics

These fish fabrics were small and different size pieces, so I cut them as big as possible squares to show the cute fabrics well. Not many scaraps were left over. A little more than this …


Trimmings look always fun!

I haven’t used many times sashing, but for this it was good. It separetes the stars and makes the colours even more bright. Fortunately I had just right blue Kona that I had bought from Judith’s shop. All the fabrics are quilting cottons except the white which is good quality cotton from a local quilt top

Now I’m quilting this by hand and hope to finish very soon…because there is a mouse waiting on my sewing table.

Other news are for my blog. You know that I have been thinking how to continue. Soon I have ran out of space here and had to decide what to do. Continue? Yes! Buy my own domain? Yes but then no. Start with new address? YES!

Decision was made because:

1. Having my own domain is not so easy. There are lot of things to fix and do which are not so easy as in a free blog. I learnt this with Trikimia’s blog.

2. I already decided to start to pay my own domain, but then realized few things as the no 1. And if I stop one day writing and paying, what happens? Does my blog then just stop existing?

3. Changing the address.  I had decided to start to pay to be able to continue with the same blog and same address. But with your own domain the address change anyway.

So with these things in my mind, I decided to start a new chapter at ‘Nero’s Post and Patch’. Everything continues as usually. Only the address will change a little bit. New address is

I’m now fixing the new blog and after the Christmas I start to post in the new address. Even then this blog site stays as it is and you can always visit and read the posts, tutorials etc. In the new blog there will be also links to the tutorials etc.

I’m linking at: ‘Sew Cute Tuesday’, ‘Fabric Tuesday’, ‘Linky Tuesday‘,  ‘Let’s Be Social’, ‘Needle and Thread’,  ‘Thank goodness its’ Finished Friday’, ‘Whoomp There It is!’. All the buttons are also on my sidelist, so you can easily visit my friends’ blogs when ever you like.

Thank you for your visit and lovely comments! Enjoy your sesonal and other sewings and hope to see you soon!
