Baby Flowers [WIP Wednesday]

I have had a very productive week! Four finishes!

Aunty Iris's quilt...

Aunty May's quilt...

A camper van cushion..

...and Mia's Buggy Blanket

My Sister-in-law saw Mia's buggy blanket and asked if I could make another two for her to give as christening present - for next weekend. We had a discussion about how long it takes to hand piece hexies... and we settled on buggy blanket versions of the quilt I made for Aunty May. This is one of the quilts and the other is the same.

The fabrics are all from my stash and my mother-in-law's and include Art Gallery, Pam Kitty Picnic, Pearl Bracelet, Flea Market Fancy, Basic Grey and many others. We've backed the basic piecing with flannel from Quilting Treasures and I've quilted a cross hatch. The petals are then attached with iron on stickiness and the next step is to free motion applique round the edges, then trim the quilts and bind them!

That's my WIP for this week. Linking up with WIP Wednesday.

Love all of these - look at all those finishes! The colors and design of the WIP quilt(s) is great - what beautiful gifts!

You have been so busy, I am always impressed with how much others manage to stitch, I am a bit of a slow coach. I especially love the blue great Aunt quilt. x

Glad you could explain the hard work and long timeline of hand pieced hexies! That could have been a friendship breaker.
