Is definitely how I would describe the deliciousness of a AMH Flannel quilt, made for a girlfriend's first baby (arriving soon!)
I can't believe how bad the photos are (I secretly hate it when people apologise for their photo quality or dirty windows etc - so a little bit of self-loathing happening here)
I think some kind of new camera is instore
(I always blame my tools hehe!)
After good advice from blogland especially Claire of Matching Pegs, I made the pattern super easy and with larger than normal seams, due to the 'interesting-ness' of sewing with flannel. It really did come together like a breeze, not so much lint everywhere as others had stated (or maybe there is so much lint already surrounding me and my machine, that I didn't notice another layer?)
Love a good quilt with legs
Some cakes for the baby shower - made from this recipe - Everyone Loved Them! aw shucks
They were yum - but not for weak of heart arteries.
and my quilt was really loved too - I was well thanked - which is a much needed boost to my sewing ego, when others don't say thank you AT ALL for gifts (made and bought)..sad face...
My new hand-project - can't believe I'm actually saying that but.....got a bundle of Garden Party AMH recently and love it - waiting patiently for its pattern to emerge (as they do sometimes).
Bought a 2" hexagon template from Mill Rose Cottage - so so pretty shop - taking the fam back there under the pretence of the apparently wonderful cafe next door and the super cute little town of Ballan. Why in Ballan? Cos it was just down the road from Hepburn Springs and a most wonderful place called Craft Retreat! Couple of weekends ago, I had the privilege of staying there over 2 nights with a lovely bunch of girls from Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild. It. was. so. good. (more to come)
Off to SAY tonight (Sew and Yarn)
