Fabric! Like chocolate, but less fattening.




My favourite thing this week is fabric. When I am feeling sad chocolate is usually my go to medication, but I have decided to pour less money down my throat and so am sewing when I need to cheer myself up. I have been wanting to quilt for ages, and now that have some clothes off my 'to do' pile I declared I was going to quilt no matter what and got to it. Above are my before, during and after pictures. I still have some binding to sew down but that doesn't really count, does it? It is just a little quilt and has only taken me bits of time over a couple of days to make. I used a jelly roll of It's A Hoot with a bigger piece for the back. It is the perfect size for little people to use in the pram, in the car or on the couch and already has a waiting list of kids wanting to use it. Once it is done I am thinking of tackling one of my larger UFO's!

It looks delicious! In fact it looks better than chocolate.

I really love your quilt ... that is gorgeous. Love the colours and the design ... so nice. So that's where I'm going wrong .... I should be quilting instead of eating chocolate. Good idea.
