The lovely Rhiannon and I have decided to do a swap,
further to my conversation yesterday about community.
Rhiannon makes awesome awesome kidlet clothes,
and I make quilts, so Rhiannon is making Annie summer clothes
and I made this quilt for Molly. It's a win-win situation.
I know Rhiannon loves a vintage vibe, so I gathered together a bundle of loveliness,
I've been cutting and stitching and gradually this wee quilt is coming together.
It's made from two shirts, a few pillowcases and some solids.
I love how the black and white spot sets it all off.
While I was away last week, I hand quilted it,
and then because it was going so well, I thought I would bind it.
I went to the lovely quilt shop in Kaikoura and brought some fabric but it didn't speak to me,
so I went to the recycle centre at Kaikoura
and brought a lovely sheet for binding and sewed on the binding.
This quilt is far from perfect, but I love it this way, I hope Molly does too.
I think she will have lots of snuggles under it!
I didn't cut out any of the backs of the circles because I wanted the quilt to be heavy
but next time I make it I think I might try because it has some bulky
seams going on there!! Hopefully Molly won't notice :)
I have another wee thing to finish to go with it,
and then this is winging it's way up north.
I'm so happy, I love making quilts for people, especially lovely lovely people.
