Hydrangea quilt

I bought these beautiful Hydrangea Fabrics , thinking I would make a quilt for my Mother for Christmas, and her birthday, As we are going to N.Z to spend Christmas with her this year. I know she likes the fabrics.

I did not have a pattern in mind but while reading some Blogs as you do, I saw Lynnette from Gin Gin and her friends were all making the Rose Trellis quilt but in different fabrics and one of them was a similar fabric different colour,

I tracked down the pattern, and while at the retreat managed to get the top made, here is a picture of the top, Its blowing in the wind a little. I am still not sure how I will quilt it. I have the wadding and backing so will start to do it this week.

Baby Quilts

Several of my daughters, friends are having babies so I have had the usual requests, Mum doo you have anything for a baby shower, One friend they were so sure she was having a girl so I made this pretty pink shabby braid quilt. oops she had a Boy !! Lewis .

Well I had also made a yellow one .....but they weren't sure so while at the Retreat I made a cute Teddy Panel up, I quilted free motion around all the pattern on the panel, The girls think that is the one she will choose.

Quilt Retreat Fun.!
