Al's Quilt

For Christmas, I made my younger sister Alex this quilt. It's made up of lots of pretty rectangles from my 30's collection with quilter's muslin in between. It is backed in a pretty purple floral 1930's fabric from Material Obsession in Hunters Hill, picked over the phone by Sheena and Kathy! I went a little quirky with the binding and used one of Kaffe Fassett's lateset lovelies - the aqua with pink shadow print. I quilted this with a white coloured Perle thread. I have to say it is probably one of my most favourite quilts. I know it's gone to a very loving home! I'm having trouble uploading some more photos (little boys playing internet games for unusually large amounts of time - used up all of Mummy's monthly usage) , so I will post some more photos of this quilt in a couple of days.

It is indeed very well loved. I look at it each and every day, discover new fabrics each day, and while I am feeding my wee babe, it has provided plenty of entertainment in the form of looking at the fabrics, daydreaming about them, and all in all - enjoying it. It's a piece of art. I love it. xxx
