:: baby snail quilt ::

How's your week been?  Brisbane has been hot hot HOT!! 

The husband went back to work last Monday.  We've had a pretty quiet week - catching up with friends, a little pottering around, and hiding out in the air-conditioning have been just about it.  Total bliss.

I made a quilt for a friend's new baby, Evie, which I loved doing.

{{it's a snail}}
The pattern is from Boo Davis' very awesome book, Dare to be Square.  I think it's the first time I've followed a quilt-pattern completely.  I even stuck to mainly two colours for the snail-shell - blues and oranges.
For the back I used one of my favourite Ikea sheeting prints, and the binding is made from a few strips of a Riley Blake chevron jelly-roll.

We met Evie last night, so the quilt has been made, washed, dried, wrapped and now handed over ready for action.

I've got my fingers crossed for more sewing time tomorrow - finishing up some QAYG placemates (using all Melody Miller fabrics, yahh!), finally finishing a couple of cushions for the girls, and sewing up another 'x and +' block.  I'm trying to work out my block for the AusModBee (more about that later), so figure I'll make a few different test blocks and make them into cushions while I'm deciding.

I'll try and post some more sewing-pics tomorrow - everything lately has been on instagram and I've been so bad at downloading them from my phone.  There's also our trip to The Quilters' and Embroiders' Store yesterday - to meet Lorena and her daughter, which was so much fun and such a lovely morning.  Tell you about it tomorrow.    Stay out of the heat   xoxo cat
