A New Week with new chances!

This weekend I finished the baby quilt for baby Storm.
I wasn't pleased at all with the quilting: at first the tension wasn't right and I had to unpick a quarter of the quilt. Luckily just a baby sized one!
Then I started quilting again and it was all sort of big, giant like.
Anyway: it's done now and the result isn't bad. Could have been better perhaps, but there you have it!

Quilt stats:
Fabrics used: Anne Kelle's Urban Zoologie Collection bought at the FQShop +
Kona Cyaan Blue and Kona Solid Chartreuse Green + a matching striped fabric bought here.
Size: 35.5" x 44.5" = 93 cm x 113 cm (before washing)
You can find the pattern I used here: can be made in one day (I didn't).

Now I really have to get a move on with the Japanese x & + block!
And have you all joined in the fun at Lynn's: by now over 1300 entries for the giveaway!
So glad I don't have to choose a winner there.

Hope to see you again some time this week.


  1. Well done! I'm sure it will be loved. I really like quilts with names on them, it really makes them 'theirs'. I often have tension problems too (with the machine and real life, but let's not go into the latter :) and it is so annoying. I hate finding one crappy stitch in a whole line of perfect stitches - I can't bring myself to just ignore it and have to pull it all out. I don't know how I'd manage FMQ.

  2. What a happy quilt - I'm sure her parents will love it.

  3. It looks fab, and I'm sure the size is fine!

  4. Aren't you a bit hard on yourself now? It look good. It really does...Storm will love playing and cuddling with it :)
