blogger's quilt festival - entry #580
I haven't been around for ages, and now that I'm back what do I do? Spam you with stuff you've seen before! I just haven't really been sewing and I haven't felt like blogging much. But I'm hoping entering the blogger's quilt festival will be the kick in the pants I need to get going again!
As I said, you've probably seen this before. The hexy baby quilt for my some-sort-of-cousin Penelope. Biggest thing I learned making this one? Let the recipients know it can go in the wash! I ran into Penny's mum and dad when I was visiting my mum and dad the other weekend. When I told them the quilt could go in the wash (gentle,cold) they were so relieved - I think it suddenly went from pretty accessory to something useful!
So, the fest asks for a few technical specs, and the first one I'm going to have to guess on...
Size: I think it's about 40x40, but it could be bigger, I didn't write down the size before giving it away
Designed by: based on a pattern from Ali of a²w, tweaked by me
Quilted by: me
