Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

A Moveable Feast

In the same way that running can be seen as not quite tripping and saving yourself from falling, over and over again, the baby mats lurch from not quite disaster and adjusting to the circumstances, over and over again.

It's probably call 'design evolution', or something, and I guess it's done all the time by quilters everywhere - but it still feels like quilting by the seat of the pants to this relative quilting novice.

So my baby mats have gone from being a quick to make, simple checkerboard design with background and floral patterns (oops! not enough background) to checkerboard with nine-patches and patterns...

...and from being floral patterns and butterfly patterns (oops! too busy!) to floral patterns on one, butterfly patterns on the other...

...and from being six by six squares to six by five squares (oops!  not enough butterfly fabric).

They will still look great, I'm sure, just not precisely what I had in mind to start with.


  1. You've gotta love it...every project is a challenge, but we all know the finish will be fabulous! Go girl!

    1. And tonight I am bunting queen with the next bunch of nine-patches, Lesley - zoooooooooom!
