Baby nappy bag changing mats

Something different for me to try...Nicole Elliot asked if I'd ever made nappy change mats, I gave it a go...

The fronts have a cute animal flannel while the backs have a coated fabric, soft but easily cleaned. The binding is an aqua polka dot and they each have batting as the inner layer. All fabrics from Spotlight. 



Approx size: 30cm x 50 cm. Nicole bought both as gifts for friends with new babies.

Batik table runner

Another little project created as an excuse to use the batik charm squares I bought a while back, and for the purpose of practising some free motion quilting...

I used a multi-coloured thread on the top (had JUST enough of it to finish all the quilting thank goodness!), and an aqua on the base.

Spider-Man Pillow


I made this 18" pillow/cushion with leftovers from my nephew's quilt, using the front panel as a trial quilting sandwich to practice the spider web designs that I used on Bain's quilt, and the minky back panel as a practice run for the next quilt that I have got ready to finish (and it has a minky backing).

Spiderman Quilt for Bain!


Here is the single bed sized quilt I have made for my 5-year old, Spiderman mad nephew, Bain...and my third finish from my list for this quarter of the 2015 Finish Along...
I think he likes it!!


I quilted sets of three lines around each block, with one block in each row and column having a spiderweb or Spiderman shooting out his web...










I cannot for the life of me get this photo to upload the right way round...sigh...
