A quilt for Sophie

Been a bit missing in action on the blogging front but sometimes I find I need to get off the computer to actually get some sewing done, so that's what I've been doing!Funny that!

As previously mentioned I have had two new nieces born in the last month so have been trying to whip up a few easy quilts for them.

For my niece, Sophie's quilt, I got this pile of Riley Blake's range "Happier" in the blue and green colourways....



but then realised that even though I'm not much a pink girl most little girls are so I got these from my stash (it includes a lot of a Ginger Blossom fat quarter stack)



Then I just cut some 4 1/2 inch squares, sewed them in strips and separated them by pink dot fabric.


Some of the fabrics in the Happier range are so cute but this is my favourite.


So sweet, it could make your teeth ache!

I'm also madly sewing a block for my Travelling Circle bee and then I need to get organised as October is my month!

And somewhere in the next couple of weeks I need to make a Boorolong Frog and Jewel Beetle costume for a play for school. Shouldn't that be fun??!! (sarcasm)

Hope you're having a good week!
