Even though I haven't sewn anything since I got home, I made a fair bit of progress before work tonight. I decided I may as well give the flanelette a test with the pastle retro quilt, which I took a photo of finally tonight after it had been quilted.

It's a bit bland, I know, but hey. I'm sure someone wants a simple, pretty, girlie, slightly bland quilt, and it's just the thing for them.

I also got the blue and brown baby quilt done too, finally, although I had to use a random piece of batting I had which was a bit narrower than the actual quilt top, which is a bit annoying. Still, the quilting came up very nice.

Excuse the cat. It does that. I liked the unstructured zigzag I did with the blue and green quilt and I decided to give it a go in the other direction. It changes randomly at each straight seam, some going parallel, some going towards each other or away from each other, and I haven't washed it yet, but so far I'm loving it.

And then, tonight, because I was feeling good about today's progress, even though I said I wouldn't, I made up another half a dozen bundles for mini quilts.

Every second one is boy safe, so I think I'm gunna focus on those ones first. I feel good about the piecing (obviously) and today's quilting upped my spirits, and best of all, binding is still a while away.

I really don't like binding, and piecing and quilting this lot will let me put off binding today's work.

I'm gunna need more batting though.


  1. Mmmm I love those bundles you've put together! And the top quilt isn't "bland," it's "gentle" & "sweet."
