Top of the Tots!

Firstly, can I ask the owner of 'Under The Maple Tree' blog to send me their email address.  You very kindly sent me an email, and I would love to reply, but unfortunately you are showing as 'no reply comment blogger'.  I've visited your blog, but there is nowhere to leave a comment, sorry. Please get in touch!

I managed to get my Across the Sea QAL quilt top finished, and within schedule (just!).

No chance of photographing this on the washing line today!  Katia might like it too much & whisk it away!
This will be a cot quilt for a pregnant friend (if she has a boy that is!).


The next stage of the QAL is making a pieced back, with 'floating' crosses.  However, I might put a soft, fleecy back on mine instead, which will make this wee quilt super snuggly.

Hope you are having a great start to the new week.  Hold on tight to your umbrella!

  1. Looking great! I changed my mind about how I was finishing the top piece, thanks to Hadley, but haven't had chance to do it yet. Alas it also means all the back calculations will be off, so I need to see how it's all going to go together to see how I need to cut the back, plus I also thing I have 60" wide fabric too!

  5. Laughing at Sarah's comment!!

    The quilt top is lovely - a fleecy back would be lovely (on the quilt, that is, not so keen on a person having one!).

  8. Haha! this has got to be the most gigglesome comment list ever, after all that, mine is going to sound so mundane! Love the quilt top, let me know how you get on with the fleecy back (ahem) as I'm a bit intimidated by them... :) x

  9. This looks so cool for a little boy and I adore the scrappy border. If she has a girl, your friend will miss out on an ace quilt!

  15. Um... pardon me, but if she doesn't have a girl, can I have first dibs please? It will make a lovely addition to mine! Love it, love it, love it. Well done you. Hope your wind wasn't to strong! ;-)
