A surprise and a finish

Finished the baby quilt a couple of days ago, so just in time for the baby shower on Sunday. I just used the blue print from the front on the back as it is kinda cute for a kid with all the bugs and butterflies. I just did straight line quilting along the seams and around the outside of the small boxes. Since it was a gift I didn't want to stuff it up with FMQ as I have not had much practice with that.



And today when I got home from work there was a package waiting for me. I won a giveaway a couple of weeks ago at Canton Village Quilt Works. Nine luscious fat quarters of Pat Bravo's Paradise. This really is just beautiful. To tempt me more Pat enclosed a catalogue of Art Gallery fabrics. Oh my, such lusciousness to drool over!! I guess this is what my hubby feels like when he opens a Repco catalogue or Supercheap Auto catalogue lol

  1. For a box pattern - perfect for straight stitching. Makes nice little pockets of 'puff' that is snuggily.

    You lucky duck - remembered that one and seeing your name and cheering. How fantastic are they? Fun play time for you.
