Cutting + sticking + sewing + baking. My creative life.

70th Birthday Quilt

I made a quilt for my Aunty Wendy’s 70th birthday.  I am really pleased with how it turned out, I think it’s one of my favourites out of all the quilts I’ve made and definately it’s in my aunty’s colours.  I dyed and printed all the fabric myself, in fact you can see some here.

 I dyed a sheet one of my Seven Sisters Quilt Group friends gave me a bright lime green to back the quilt with.

 I sewed a cross stitch labels and applied them to one of the blocks.  The quilt pattern is ‘Disappearing Nine Patch’.  We love this pattern at our quilt group, since one of our members taught it to us we have made lots of quilts with this pattern.

 I put two vintage Milly Molly Mandy books in the parcel.  I have already given my aunt the first two books as she loves them.  She translates them in to Swedish for her grandchildren as she reads to them.

There was a worrying day or two when I thought the parcel had got lost in the post but thankfully it arrived in Sweden eventually.
Phew!
Love Melanie x
