In amongst various other jobs I managed to do some sewing this weekend. I had some patchwork blocks I had made ages ago with nothing particular in mind so I decided to put them together to create a small quilt. It will be given to a work colleague who is pregnant with a baby girl.
Here it is draped over the ironing board with the batting and backing attached. I have begun stitching it together by machine stitching along the joins of some of the blocks.
I know that my techniques are nothing like quilters would use, but it is made entirely with scraps, offcuts and thrifted fabrics and a generous dose of love and care.
