I am chuffed to bits!

Remember a few days back I mentioned Boo and I snuggling up under the quilt I made her? Well, I thought I'd show it off a bit. It's the first quilt I've ever made and now I want to make a million more! Saying that, this one was supposed to be finished a little while ago (ok, a BIG while ago) but now it's finished I want to start another one straight away! It's got mistakes unique, quirky bits all over it but I love it and, more importantly Baby Boo does too.

I did that twirly, whirly stitching (stippling?) which I think looks pretty cool and feeding the quilt through the machine gave me biceps to be proud of. Who knew quilting was such a workout?! Right, off to pick out fabric for quilt number 2.

PS. Sorry about the grey skies. I did ask the weather fairy for blue with a hint of fluffy cloud but she muttered something about budget cuts and so that was that. Linking to Whipperberry's Friday Flair with the 'Baby Boo Quilt'.


  1. Congrats on your first quilt! I'm in the process of beginning my very first too!! Great job!!

  2. Thank you! I love it! So glad I started this quilting malarky!

  3. It's soooo lovely! I must admit I did a really easy baby one for my first - am on one for our king-size bed at the minute, it's taking a while but starting to come together now at last.

  4. I know they're beautiful! But wayyy out of my price range! I'd love to take a look at your quilting folder, that'd be super helpful! Thanks!
