Stash Stack Quilt

Running behind a little as baby No. 2  is about 10
days old now and I have only just finished this quilt.

Julie from Jaybird Quilts had this free tutorial
on her blog and I knew I had to make this.

I love the bright colours and thought it was perfect for a boys quilt.
I love the whales and owls they are soo cute!

Its a single size quilt but I'm sure little Brodee will grow into it.

A nice quick and easy quilt to make on a weekend.
I have machine quilted this with a Panto called Popcorn, great
for babies quilts.

Have a great day!

Funny Babies

Look what arrived in the mail today

Funny Babies- Pattern by Amy Bradley

As soon as I saw this pattern I knew I
had to make it.

I think I need to accept the fact that I am drawn to
applique quilts and to stop fighting it. More work 
I know but the results are worth it.

I cant wait to get into making this quilt its just
the cutest thing.

Are there any applique addicts out there, like me??
What is your preferred method, hand applique, machine or
Raw Edge, I have just recently learnt Raw Edge, I find it quicker, so
that's my preference, whats yours??

Happy Quilting
