and number two:
So this is what happened. You know when I said in my last post that I had a huge pile of the blocks. Well huge doesn't really cut it. I started laying them out and realised that this was not gonna be a little baby quilt but either a small single or God knows what. So I simple decided to make two baby quilts which would be great for twins !
I can't tell you how much fun I had making these quilts. It was so liberating using all these fabric almost at random and even more so adding from my stash. In actual fact this was my first "foray" into scrap territory which in the past I have studiously avoided because I have never seen the attraction to handle a loat of scrap pieces. I was wrong; this is fun !
I quilted one of the pair in double diagonals and one in double square lines. Each uses a print from Aneela Hoey's very first fabric line 'Sherbet Pips' for the backing. This works perfectly as the collection itself features pink rather liberally.
There are so many pieces in these two quilts that I love. There are the balloons and the dress from 'Children at Play', there is some 'Far Far away' in there and would you believe it some Liberty tana lawn too, lots of strips and dots and little animals, text prints and chevron.....
