ok, so maybe i have pregnancy brain, maybe i shouldn't sew when i am this tired, maybe i should learn to count better, but i got my beautiful dream on charm pack in the mail today, and couldn't wait to get started. i really want to do a disappearing nine patch with sashing, to make a baby quilt. i was sewing my nine patches together as i went, when i got to my last pile, and realised i was 3 squares short....NNNNOOOOO!
i don't have ANY fabric that i can add in that is a match, so here's my request! Does anyone have a square to spare??? can you spare a square??? PLEASE!!! i will cover postage (i am in OZ- as in Australia, not the magical land of OZ- although if this works, then maybe it is magical hehe!) if you can help!?!?!??!
Am i dreaming...can i dream...on...and finish my quilt, or should i just bite the bullet and get another charm pack.....
its been a little quiet around here lately, but i assure you i have been busy sewing away- mainly items for my nursery, which is almost complete. lucky, as i only have about a week left until my due date! i will definitely post some pic's once its done, but for now, here are some photos of my newest quilt. i love this one- it's from my collection of vintage linens, and i originally had all my pieces 4 times larger- in the railroad style, but it wasn't working for me. so i cut them all into quarters, and re-did my quilt top. i really like it now, it seems to show off the fabrics a little better. it is backed in the same soft baby pink flannel as my last quilt, which is on its way to its new home now!
what do you think? its going up in both madeit and etsy tonight!!
I was so excited last night when i checked my emails, and saw that my vintage baby quilt was featured in the Monday Finds email from madeit.com. i also then saw that my busy boy baby quilt was one of their top baby finds on the madeit blog!! THEN, this morning, my vintage baby quilt was displayed on the front page (ok,ok so i did pay extra for it be listed on there at some stage, but great that it happened all within a 24 hour period!) And then...even better- i checked my emails this morning, and guess what!!!! my vintage quilt has sold!!! my first real sale!! as you can tell by my overuse of these- !!!!!!- i am VERY excited...and now also very nervous, as i hope Jane loves it.
only one way to find out- its going off in the post this week.
if you want one of your very own soulbaby quilts head over to madeit or etsy
i have been saving my vintage linen's for ages now, waiting for some inspiration, and i found it! do you love it?? it is so pastelly perfect, snugly and soft, i just wish it was big enough for my bed, or even a picnic blanket... but, it is truly the perfect fit for a new little person : )
just listed in my etsy shop here if you want to love it in person ; )
