Quilt No.6

If you're a friend of ours who has recently had a baby, you probably ought to stop reading now...
2010's quilt number six has been completed, it was inspired by this.

I'm delighted to say that it's made entirely from fabric I already had in my stash, even the batting I used was made up from the leftovers from this quilt.  The size (34" square) was dictated by the size of the piece of blue flannel fabric I had for the backing, but it was worth working to accommodate it, because it's made the quilt wonderfully soft.

The letters at the bottom are the baby's initials (if our friends didn't give up at that first line, they've really blown it now!)

Jim had to stop me trying to deliver it to them this evening, it can wait till tomorrow...

Next I have a few cushion covers to make, a beach bag for my sister and some clothing. I ordered tracing paper for my pajama bottoms pattern from the UK a fortnight ago, but due to the volcanic ash flight disruptions, we haven't had post for over a week now.

As always there MUST be somewhere in Cyprus that sells tracing paper that's wide enough, but I'm damned if I know where it is!


  1. hi, love the quilt - theres something so satisfying on being able to pull something together from the existing stash isn't there!
    There's an arts and crafts shop that opened last year in Paphos. I dont know what its called, but its on the Tomb of the Kings road, at the far end towards Coral Bay and its part of a small new block of shops that was built last summer one of which is a computer shop. They do a mixture of crafty bits so you may get lucky in there and get some tracing paper.
    Good luck!
