I see nice baby bedding here and there on the market so I was interested in finding the name of this bedding. It’s called baby nest. It’s nice little addition to your baby stuff and I think it’s better to have a baby nest than cute little pillows around your sleeping baby. The best part of knowing crafts is that we can make whatever we want at home even it’s not available in your area. Don’t know how to make it? Just google it or search on  Pinterest.

HERE is the tutorial I found on Pinterest on how to make a baby nest at home. enjoy!

This is Juliana’s quilt and it is a gift for one of her friends.  I love all the bright colours against the white background. I don’t know the name of the block or pattern but will add that info to the post once I know.  I haven’t been doing much quilting this week as my hands have been aching.  A few times a year I find I really struggle with quilting because of this ache. Don’t think it is arthritis just over use and my bodies way of saying ‘slow down with the quilting!’

 

 

I used the Feather Curls panto on this one to add a soft texture to the piecing.  White So Fine thread on top and white Bottom Line on the pink backing.  Quilters Dream Blend batting.

 

 

 

We have been having crazy weather with warm days and snow melting and then cooler days with lots of snow fall!

This is my guild Black and White Challenge entry for our quilt show in April.  Members were given 3 black and white print fat quarters as well as were asked to pick a marker out of a bag without looking.  The marker colour is our accent colour to add to the quilt.  We could also add solid black, solid white and more black and white print fabrics.   Here is the marker I picked and was happy to have found fabric that matched really well.

There was no size requirements for this challenge so I only made a small wall hanging that is 36” x 36”.  I used the Rapid Fire Hunters Star ruler to cut out the pieces and was really impressed with how it worked.

I stitched in the ditch then added the feather motifs.  I didn’t quilt anything in the black and white print fabrics as the prints are quite bold.  Used white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

We had about 40 members buy kits for this challenge and I have seen a lot of them being worked on at our retreats and UFO days, even a few done and shown at Show and Tell.  I’m looking forward to seeing them all together at the show, it will be a great display!
