August was a month of family celebrations for the SUDs household, which I'd love to share more of in my next post, but for now I thought you might like to see some finished projects? I completed two quilts within a week of each other (don't be too impressed, I actually started the latter one pictured close to two years ago!!) But hey - it sounds so much better to admit to two close finishes - so we won't dwell on that!
I started designing, stitching and piecing Lily's baby quilt a couple of months ago, as my nephew knew his baby was a girl and the name Lily had already been agreed upon. I chose Leanne Beasley's first line of fabric, Hearts and Happy Flowers. How I love those prints!! I kept to a pink palette as the new parents had requested.
With one of Rosalie Dekker's prints thrown in for good measure!
The quilt has since been completed and is now wrapped around sweet Baby Lily (I'll ask my nephew's permission to post a pic of her - she's so gorgeous - do you love babies as much as I do?!!!) Unfortunately I haven't been able to have a cuddle with sweet Lily because she lives in England and I am on the other side of the world in Australia. But at least I know that something I've made especially for her can be wrapped around her in the place of my arms.
This next quilt was made with a layer cake of Celebrate by Sweetwater & Co. I just added some white sashing, and Rosie's favourite print became the border.
Next up for a finish is a sweet needle book project designed by Melissa Grant of One Day in May, called Daisy Dance (you can find the pattern here). I've finished all the embroidery, now I'm cutting all the fabric pieces out, all good stuff! The delicious mix of Tilda (TM) fabric with Cottage Garden Threads... yum!
That's just about it until next time... what have you been up to?
Warmest wishes dear friends!
