All-occasion baby-quilt No 3 and other news

I finally bought my 'Fat Quarterly retreat' ticket and am literally counting the days until the 2nd of June. It will no doubt be fabulous as it is organized by the fabulous Fat Quarterly crew. This will also be the first time all of the Brit Bee members will meet which I am looking forward to after having only conversed with most of them via our flickr group for almost a year now. . Are any of you coming ?

Whilst I am happily quilting away on 'Tuscan Hills' at a two-bobbin-per-evening speed  (which should give you an idea about the amount of quilting this one is treated to) I thought I share with you another one of my all-occasion-baby quilts that my sister commissioned me to make as she wanted a present for friends of hers
who just had their first baby.

Of course I obliged as it is so much fun making these. Technically they are mini quilts and quite possibly are the only mini-quilts I enjoy making simply because they have a purpose and will be used. Mostly these are actually used as changing mats from what I hear of the recipients I gifted them to in the past.

And that is exactly what I hoped would be their purpose. My friend Leigh carries her all-occasion baby-quilt with here everywhere and that makes me rather happy. 

I really should be making some in advance and perhaps also for the shop....well one day....
