The Birth of a New Quilt

Thank you so much ladies for all your very sweet comments about my new quilt.  I really do appreciate them.  And yes I will be gifting it.  I've got over it and moved on.  See I did it!  Yep, I went to the cupboard and pulled all my fabrics out...

and then Daughter No.1 came home from school and I knew then it was time to make her quilt.  So we found all the red and aqua fabric we've been collecting over the months and boy was she a happy girl.

This quilt will have white borders around every square.  I love lots of white in quilts.  It will sit folded up at the end of her bed when she isn't using it.  I'm not quite up to making a queen sized quilt!  So single it will be, but oh so pretty too.

Now I will have to visit Spotlight yet again for white fabric.  Such a shame I know!!  It probably won't be today.  No.3 has been quite sick this week with fevers and sweats but she's much better today though.  Anyway it must be time for a cuppa, it's 10am.  Have a great day lovely people!

Hello again - nope, the old vineyard hut in my photo housed the table, benches and fridge available to campers. The wash rooms were actually in a modern building of about the same size next door to it.
