This used to be a craft-type blog

Then I got married, had a baby, moved to China, started my Masters degree … and the crafting got forgotten a little in favour of all the other exciting things happening in my life.

But then some friends had a baby so I made them a quilt – when I should have been doing uni work. I already had the blocks leftover from another quilting project (actually, they weren’t left over – the project was never completed), so a lot of the work was already done. The quilting was actually fun – not sure if I would have thought the same if the quilt was any bigger. This was only about 100 cm x 80 cm – perfect new baby size.

The front - quilting detail

The back - soft flannel

Pink for a baby girl

The whole quilt
