Birds in the Air Cot Quilt

My good friends M & J, welcomed a new little girl into the world on Easter Monday, and I have finally got a chance to start working on her cot quilt.

I am using this pattern from the first Elm Creek quilt pattern book

Here is my progress so far,

It is all cut out and all the 1/2 sq triangles are sewn together, just need to assemble the blocks, 1 of each color done, just 15 (45 in total) more to go. The material in the top left hand corner is the boarder print and the orange Ric-rac print is for the binding.

I am actually presently surprised how quickly this quilt is coming together. It has been a while since I have done a solely pieced quilt.

Doll Quilt Class

I have now had 4 months of my Doll Quilt class which I talked about back here, so I thought I should show off what I have achieved so far.

This is the quilt top from the first month, I just need to hand quilt some of the 9 patch blocs, not really my choice of colours but I liked how easy is was to put together

This is the top from the second month, also needing to be quilted. I love this quilt, I had always shied away from y seams but actually enjoyed them in this quit. The colors are a bit washed out do to taking photo at night

Month 2 is still very much a WIP, and I was not able to attend Month 4 class so I am still to start that one. It is crazy patchwork done on foundation papers, which after completed the wall hanging for the EB Newbie Quilters swap I am not in any rush to do foundation piecing any time soon
