Time to do some Quilting.

I thought it was time to do some quilting, when I heard it was only 3 months till our Gt Grandson is due to arrive. 

So I started on his quilt, (the fabric is called Guess how much I love you by Clothworks) and is really lovely. I took the idea for the pattern from Lynne Goldsworthy pattern Forest Friends.

The large squares are 8 1/2" as I wanted to show case the lovely bunnies. The photo does not do it justice but just the borders to add and then get it sandwiched and quilted.

A little more knitting was done, and of course it had to be socks.

They look so little next to a pair of normal socks. Fiddly but great fun to make.

A lot of gardening has been done over the weekend. I have been in and out like a yo-yo dodging the April showers.:0)
For those of you who follow my blog here is a view from the back door, not much colour there as yet, and yep the shed door needs a lick of paint..

Last time when I did a round up of the lovely quilts at our Bee, I left out this one of my friend Sandra's. It is machine appliquéd and she has quilted it beautifully, most of it by hand.

Well, the sun is out so it's off to the garden again, till it rains and then it will be cutting borders for the baby quilt..

Keep safe and keep stitching.......................Doti...
