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 Start and A Finish - and a Finish

Last year Dave-next-door asked if I would make a case to protect his new laptop and he was very pleased with what I knocked together.  So much so that when Patti-next-door had a new laptop recently, they asked me if I would make one for her too.

It's the same 'folder' style with the flap secured with velcro, but I used a slightly different technique for this one.

Rather than put a sandwich together, sew the edges (right sides together) and turn inside out; I put a fold in the sandwich to the size of the laptop, then I put the binding round the edges of the case shape as if I was edging a quilt.  I was very pleased with this, and Patti was delighted too.

And - on schedule, ready for her visit next weekend - I have finished the binding and label for the baby mat for Granny Helen to give to baby Thomas Lester.

Pictures of the end result, therefore, next weekend, but for now, a tiny peek of the label...
