March 2013

February has been a busy month. In class we carried on with  the Floral quilt blocks and the Block squares. And we also made rabbits, I have a commercially designed pattern I have used for years that makes  15” tall rabbit, but for the class we have shrunk it to 10½” and 7½” tall. Then made them up in all different fabrics.

Still on toys finished Georgia the Giraffe, made from 1” squares, adds to the collection of dogs, snail, elephant and polar bear. They are great projects to tack in the evening while watching TV and also a brilliant way of using up scraps.

I have also been working on a lot of Quilted Postcards, a range to sell at the Fairkytes shop and then also Valentine’s day, family birthdays and Mother’s day. Then a couple more of ‘door’ ones for me. I am thinking about Easter ones as well!!!

Haven’t had a chance to quilt any more of my tops but have started making two single quilts for my twin niece and nephews 2nd birthday, for when they go in there big beds. Using a simple star design.
