Deja Vu

I worked today, actually I’m at a new school teaching year 5/6 on Thursdays and Fridays. I was happy to do this because it will still give me the flexibility to travel and sew. I can pick up other supply days as I want them. The only downside is I only have time for a bit of knitting tonight after I get my hair done!

I did finish another baby quilt yesterday though…

I know what you are thinking; the front and back are remarkably similar! Well I did say that I had 4 baby quilts done in Aneela Hoey fabric. I’m not sure what I was thinking at the time. I think I’ve just had this fabric for awhile and just kept cutting squares. This one has full 9 patch blocks though and of course it’s still one of a kind because none of the fabrics are in exactly the same spots.

2 more to go!

Gogo Little Baby Quilt

I’ve been super motivated to get some quilting done since I’ve been back in the UK. Before Christmas I had finished four little baby quilts out of Aneela Hoey fabric. I had the tops and backs done and I just needed to sandwich them to finish the quilting. I finished the first one on Monday. It is inspired by a baby 9 patch quilt that I learned from Johanna Masko, quilt teacher in Toronto. I adapted her technique for cutting 9 patches and just kept cutting smaller until I got a 25 patch. I love the little squares. I may have been a bit lazy but I decided to pair it with large solid blocks of fabric. I wanted the cute fabric to have a chance to shine through too! I also tried to use up the fabric by creating a scrappy back. Check it out…

I don’t know who it’s for yet but maybe I’ll have to start selling these creations soon!
