Works in Progress

Feeling very pleased with myself this week as I have come close to finishing some quilts, my very hungry caterpillar quilt is now ready to be quilted and I just finished quilting "Dinosaurs" that my daughter made. She used the Fabrics by Free Spirit by David Walker, which I think are gorgeous and very cute, well done Simone!!..... (now to teach you how to do the binding!!).

I think the back is just as good!!

My girlfriend asked me kindly to quilt this cot panel and I could not refuse so here it is...

It didn't turn out too bad for a panel but I think the back is better, what do you think??

And last but not least I made this cot quilt which I got the idea from Amanda Jean from Crazy mom quilts, I made it in " HushaBye" and it was very quick and easy, I really enjoyed putting this together as it was fast and sometimes its nice to see the end result in a day.

Being new to blogging I find my mind a buzz with all the fantastic ideas and inspiration and can't wait to get started on some of these great quilts. Most are so simple but so stunning which has shown me that, you don't need to make complicated quilts, but with great color choices you can have awesome results...I have also seen some very talented ladies out there, so keep up the good work.

Happy Quilting!!

Hi Mandy,
Love the Tumblers baby quilt - is it the size you get from 5" charm squares? I've always wanted to do this quilt and now I have seen your HushaBye version I will have to start building a stash!
Your machine quilting is lovely. Don't you just love that Cot Quilt Panels are back in fashion? They make up so quickly and the current ones available are so trendy - I noticed at the recent Craft Show that they were on just about every stand.
