Feeling patchy!

I had an order from a friend the other day to make one of these pram patchwork quilts for a new baby due soon in their family.  I have made a few of these as orders as they seem to be a nice new baby present.

They do take a while to make and I am sure the patchwork police would look at them in horror! But I quite enjoy making them (so long as I don't have to make them too often, as then I think I would get bored!) and I hope the new mum will like it!

I enjoy sorting out all the different fabric to use and I especially love the fabric I used for the backing at the moment. It was a vintage sheet that I have ended up using on loads of projects recently.

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.............................................

It looks lovely to me! I still have your bits of fabric.... and still have plans but no actions as yet!

Hope you are well? Thought of you the other day when I moved the lovely mermaid into a new spot!

Love Charlotte
