    Well, I went to Hobbycraft after work tonight, and now have the fabric and satin ribbon that I am going to use for the borders, binding and backing. It is all in the washing machine as we speak, am itching to get going but I don't have a tumble dryer so I will have to be patient and carry on tomorrow when it has all dried.

    The girl in the shop who cut my fabrics was very generous with her measurements. And on the pink fabric after she measured what I wanted, there was only about a quarter metre left on the bolt so she said I may as well have it as they probably wouldn't sell it anyway! Yaay! My very small stash is growing!

    Enjoy the pics, I hope you are all well this evening.

    White for the backing, pink for the binding, green and yellow for the borders

    Lovely fabrics, and you ARE very lucky to be given the end of roll, THAT has never happened to me :(

    I think Kitchen is a very cheaky chappie taking off with the ribbon, great pictures :D

    Beautiful quilt. But I don't think you are going to be able to give it away . Your quilt ploice have taken a likeing to it. Looks like they have clamed it for their own from day 1. Have to make another. Just for them.

    I love the modern "baby" look. I will have to look into some charm packs for my nieces baby. You did a great job. It is amazing how cats think that EVERYTHING belongs to them.

    Mary, you did a great job-the quilt is just beautiful! I am sure that it will be a welcome gift--if you can ever get it from your kitties to give it away!! :D Please take pics at the baptism and show us the quilt AND the baby.
