This is my latest quilt. I have used the lovely tufted cotton fabric again as I love the texture it creates. I love making these. I always thought hand stitching too slow, but I have begun to enjoy it and its therapeutic effects, and I love the effect the circular stitching has on quilts. You just could not do it with my machine, it would be a constant battle and I would end up with an unsightly splodge effect.
I listed this quilt on my Etsy shop yesterday evening and have received a message to inform me that on the same day it was listed, it was chosen for PolyAndClayed's treasury which you can see here.
My youngest niece also loved it. I had made it for the arrival of the new baby, and took it over last weekend when we went to visit. It went down a storm with her and she claimed it as her dancing mat! Not sure that this is a good idea considering it is for baby to lie on. I guess he is going to have to become accustomed to being trampled on. It's a good job she's a little diddly dot!!!
