One pink elephant in the middle of a cradle quilt turned out to be just perfect for a little baby girl. This is the quilt that I have sent to Ireland for my grand-daughter Emilia, who has now reached the grand old age of 11 days.
As you can imagine, I have been slightly distracted over the past few days. Because we can't make firm plans to go and visit yet, I have been eagerly awaiting photos every day. Already I can see her growing, getting a little fatter in the face, and looking at the world with wide open eyes.
As for sewing, I have finished the weighted blanket this evening, so I should be able to take some photos of it tomorrow. Making 35 all white weighted pads was monotonous, and has left me yearning for a colourful project. No doubt I shall think of something soon enough.
Here goes for Week 303:-
Many thanks to Gail for linking up with her elephant quilt. If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more.
If you have no free motion quilting to show, feel free to link up and show any project you like. Here are the usual rules, but feel free to ignore them. To keep the original emphasis, however, preference will be given to free motion quilting when featuring projects from the previous week.
If you love free motion quilting, whether you are a beginner just taking the plunge, or you have reached the stage where you can do ostrich feathers with your eyes shut and still achieve perfect symmetry, then please link up.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
2. Link back to this post in your own post.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
4. The link up will remain open for five days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Tuesday.
So far quilters from the USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, France, Macau, Russia, Ireland, Brazil and Sweden have taken part. The
first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
