Quick Quilt

Yesterday afternoon I had a quick quilting interlude.  During the morning I'd got up to date with the wedding quilt, everything pieced is now quilted too.  DH took me out for a lunch at our local caf√©, bless him, and then it seemed a good time to make a cot quilt for a friend who has just had a baby. Dixie-May was born on 10th February and I will be meeting her next Monday.  Knowing I would be pushed for time I bought a lovely panel from Wendy at Camelot Crafts and yesterday afternoon I made it up into this quilt.  I'm very pleased with it.  The borders are simply pieced, the centre is simply quilted.  Maybe it wasn't as satisfying, creatively, as other things I do but I'm very pleased with it.  Bright, simple and perfect for a new baby.  I hope Dixie-May will like it.

  3. It is charming, and a simple panel quilt its perfect for a baby who will really use, and maybe abuse, the quilt.
