Latest Quilt

Yahoo finally finished this quilt tonight while watching tv. I have had it to the hand sewing on the binding stage for weeks. But with Isla’s birth and my brothers death I have just not had time or the inclination to sit and stitch.

I started this quilt not long after Antionette became pregnant. I thought it was a cute quilt that could be used for either a boy or a girl and the best it used up heaps of scraps!

All I have to do now is to make a quilt label! But I have a deadline…… Isla will need it soon as its her floor rug and we all know how quick time goes these days. She will be on the floor and crawling before we know it so I had better get it done soon!

Oh just in case anyone is wondering… the pattern is called Sugar and Spice and was in one of the Patchwork and Quilting “front covers” book 2.
