back to quilting

Hello there, I have just realized that I didn’t write a post for more than 3 months! Where did the time go? I definitely had some long holidays away from sewing and quilting. In these 3 months I went to see my Mum in Prague, we have had some work done around the house and we had family staying us.

I made this baby quilt for a small lady :

Quilt details : 81 hourglass blocks and 2 borders, size 40″ x 40″. Quilted with the walking foot in straight lines. Material used :

  • 1 Moda Charm Pack Hubba Hubba by Me and My Sister Designs
  • 1 m solid pink
  • 0,5 m solid yellow
  • 0,25 m solid fuchsia for binding
  • 1,10 m backing fabric
  • 1,10 x 1,10m wadding

The other project that I am working on is still in progress, so just photos from the back with the various quilting patterns :

And last but not least : I am knitting. This is my pattern for a new jacket. The white wool is Sublime Superfine Alpaca dk and the colors are Drops Baby Merino. Both knitting wools have a superb quality. To start this project I have to receive a parcel with Red Lace circular needles from Chiagoo.

That is all for now, thanks for stopping, Barbora

    Welcome back Barbora. It must be springtime – at the moment I am a bit lazy with blogging too. I like that lovely girly babyquilt you made And looking forward to see the other project’s front… is it something quilt as you go?… I’m curious.

      Thanks for stopping, I hope to finish the other blocks soon. I have also some UFOs on the shelf. So this year is a year of finishes.


  4. The baby quilt is wonderful. The pink background really makes it, and the proportions you used on the borders was just right. I do love hourglass blocks — could make them all day.
