So what better way to spend an evening that sewing.
I am pleased to say that I got not only the sashing but the borders on Mitchell's BIG boy bed quilt so now I have two flimsy's ready to go. I think I need to pay a visit to spotlight this week to purchase enough batting for these two, and while I am there I better get enough for my French General jelly roll sampler quilt as well.
Here are the flimsy's for Leo and Mitchell's BIG for bed quilts
A closer look at Mitchell's quilt
An even closer look at the squares
Both of these were made predominantly with the new range 10 little things, I started with a layer cake. The zoo animals in the centre of Leo's quilt was made with a panel I have had in my stash for several years, as well as some marble fabrics that set it off nicely.
I was going to bind Leo's in the orange but think I will use the green that is the sashing in this quilt, and probably bind Mitchell's in either a navy or a red, what do you think?
Leo turns 2 on May 6th so I might have to get cracking and get his done in time for that, (Mitchell turned 2 on December 13th last year).
Next I have Jack turning two in September
so I have to start thinking of a BIG boy bed quilt for him before long .
All of these grandies sure keep me busy in the sewing room.
No wonder a good part of my stash is nursery or children's novelty prints.
Have a fabulous week every one and take a moment to remember our soldiers
on Anzac Day this Wednesday
LEST WE FORGET
