    Another LovequiltsUK quilt for Theo

    I have just finished and posted a quilt for this wee boy http://lovequiltsuk.com/childquilt.php?qid=417 unfortunately when I was busy uploading pics of it this happened, the quilt tester struck yet again, she was so determined that the crease at the bottom right is me hauling on to to reclaim it and the look in her eyes and the accompanying soft growl told me she was serious!!

    So I had to vacuum and lint roll it all over to get her hairs off it, what a pain.

    The thing I am most chuffed about it that with it being Aida fabric that I have to sew, which frays terribly so that it has to be overlooked, and after doing one border I found that I had the seam opening on the front instead of the back so I did a designer change and appliquéd this cute sleepy hippo and I think it looks cute.

    The Charity supplies all the fabric and as you can see they do a fabulous job of choosing them, making a cute quilt for a poorly kiddiewink is so easy when supplied with such a lovely kit.

    Very cute quilt and Mr. Hippo looks like he is right where he belongs. Could his brothers and sisters visit other places on the quilt? Very Smart. BrendaK

    Well Mama, if she growled, then she needs you to make her one also.

    What a darling quilt and my hat is off to you for your work! It is always great to have "helpers" even if they growl a little
