Sailing Away Quilt Completed

I finally finished stitching the bias for this little quilt last night so that I could post you the pictures before the weekend. This has turned into one of my favourite quilts so far. I do love the colour combo of blue, red and white together, it's such a simple but effective design.

I showed a picture of how I was going to quilt it a couple of posts ago, but on reflection I thought the pattern was too fussy and I wanted to portray calmer waters so I have done a bit of a simple wave design with some curls.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Pinwheel Quilt

Recently I was asked to make a quilt for a new baby by a friend from Sweden. There was little time and the brief was red, blue and cream patchwork. I came across this design on Moda Bakeshop from Jodi of SimplyThisThatandtheOther found here . It was very easy and quick to do, I wasn't sure if the design would work with mixed coloured pinwheels, I used a charm pack from Moda's Zippity Doo Dah range, but I am more than happy with the finished article.

The quilt is winging it's way to a new baby boy in Sweden who is being Christened early next month. I hope he enjoys the quilt for many years to come.
Some Loop-d-loop quilting finished it off nicely.
Completed boat quilt and other exciting projects coming soon.
