At Last

I have quilt tops (yes plural!!!) to show you
I started making an hst quilt a while ago but didn't get to work on it much but since I've moved the sewing machine into the house I've managed to finish it and get another one done



Now in my excitement I photographed them before I pressed them so they look pretty dodgy but I think they are ok really (the grey isnt really gathered like the photo makes it look!)

So there is one each for my boys, big hst's for my big boy (he insists he is a big boy and there is trouble if anyone says differently! 3 yr olds definitely know their own mind!!!)


little hst's for my little Buddy



In our new house their bedroom is going to have a bit of a 'travel' theme, the orange in these reminds me of the colour you find in vintage maps which is why I chose it, and then mixed it with earthy browns, greys and a couple of blues.

I think Buddy's has ended up looking a bit 80's but I like it anyway. Now I just need to find the time and space to quilt them!



I do love hst's, do you?
