Blogtoberfest 2010 - 24th

It seems to be quilt season in the blog world today.

Lynne has been sewing together her very bright and colourful quilt top.

Vic used the power of bloggers/blogging to complete her quilt too.

I finished up the little quilt I have been working on for a friend's fourth son!

The first side shown here is quilters flannel

a close up of the fabrics used for you.


The other side is normal quilting cotton, with Michael Miller's Bot Camp fabric, some toning spots and various homespuns from the stash.


A close up for this one as well


I ended up filling it with batting and binding it with navy. Simply "quilted" by machine on the diagonals and by hand around the central 3x3 square.
Very happy with how it has turned out. It's heading into the laundry for a wash and then once it's dry it will be delivered to it's new owner :-)

PS Don't forget about my giveaway!
