Hello you lot!

Thought you might like to see pics of my latest baby quilt. This is quilt number three for me, I am slowly building up my portfolio!

This one is for baby Lewis on his first birthday on the 25th Nov. He is the baby of Greg and Rachel, friends that my brother and I have known for a long time.

I chose bright fun fabrics because Lewis is such a cheerful, happy little lad, and so cheeky too. I got all the fabrics from eBay, except the binding and backing. I love eBay! It was all very cheap.

Iím pleased with it, a few hiccups along the way but not that youíd notice I hope. Itís the first time Iíve tried anything other than straight line quilting. I used a stencil for the border, Iím please with how it came out. I think I am almost ready to have a go at free motion quilting, just need to buy a foot and put together some practice pieces.

I used an indelible laundry marker pen for the label (set it with a dry iron), anyone else tried using laundry pens for labels? It says itís indelible and is designed to be washed so Iím hoping it will last. Iím going to wash the quilt on Sunday, so have not sewn the label to it yet, but will pin it in with safety pins to see how the ink holds up. If it looks like it fades I will go buy a pigma pen and do a new label.

Anyway, hope you like it! I think the cats do!

That is so cute. But I don't think it is Lewis's quilt any more. looks like some one else clamed it. You just have to mak them one now; or them may be upset.

Kitties have gave it the stamp of approval! It looks great. I'm sure Lewis will love it. :-)

:D Great job, I love the way the little Pooh bears go all around. Your quilting is getting better as well. :) Now don't go taking that wrong. I mean you've branched out and did a bit more than stitch in the ditch and it looks great.

The one with the kitty under the quilt is to funny! Was that one or both of them?

Nothing to take wrong Elizabeth, thanks for such a nice compliment! I enjoyed branching out, my confidence is growing for sure.

It was just Satchmo (the black cat) underneath! They love burrowing, anything laid out on the floor and they dig right under it!
