While the husband was away

Ben was in Sydney for Equitana over the weekend selling his Horserail, so I had a lovely time sewing my little heart out.

A friend asked me to make some bunting and a quilt for her little ones room. The bunting was fun and got me super inspired.

I whipped up this Sprocket Pillow following Allison's tutorial. I had so much fun with this. It was pretty easy and I actually just used the left over bunting triangles for it, so didn't even need to cut rounded ended ones. The side if it is some Michael Miller flannel and the back is minki dot fabric for a bit of fun.

Then I had a brilliant idea for a friend who LOVES donkeys. So I started sewing these blocks like a mad woman. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted the quilt to look like - modern, fun and bright. I have finished the top but the batteries went flat on the camera after I took these two pics so more once it is charged.

I think she will love it, especially for snuggling under on the couch in winter.
