Was it really October 2015 when I last blogged? The difference 19 months can make...
The reason I stopped blogging was because I wasn't doing nearly as much sewing and quilting. The reason I wasn't doing as much sewing and quilting was because I was pregnant and I now have a lovely baby.
I did manage to do some sewing during my pregnancy and I am doing the odd bit of sewing now and then, but now that baby is in more of a routine I am finally getting a little time to myself on an evening and can get my beloved sewing machine out on a more regular basis. Hurrah!
I can't possibly mention the many different things I have worked on and finished between my last blog post and now, but I will tell you about a big quilt I am currently working on.
I got a request from a family member to make a huge baby quilt for a friend having boy triplets. The triplets' mum had seen other quilts I had made and was desperate to own one and use it as a backdrop to the many future photos of the triplets.
I am calling this quilt The Power of Three because I have based much of it around the concept of three. I have pieced three different shapes in the three primary colours. I have shadow-quilted these shapes three times. I have quilted numbers 1, 2 and 3 as well as the letters G, H and J, which are the boys' initials. The rainbow border also has three colour coordinated three shadow-quilted lines.
I like this quilt because it has all been made from stash fabrics. I am further on with it than these photos suggest. I have put a black binding on it to make the rainbow border stand out. The backing fabric is a fun Space fabric which I think is vibrant enough to match the primary colours on the front.
Here's hoping you come back and see the finished item.
