It's finished!

We had a lovely Easter break in Anglesea, by the beach.
Very lazy, very relaxing.
And beautiful weather, sunny days, cloudless skies and a cool autumn chill in the air, my absolute favourite kind of days. (I can't help it, I think it's the English in me, I just love cold weather!)

And little m got his first taste of life in the country. We showed him the ocean, koalas, and the kangaroos that were jumping just outside the front door, he soaked it all in.

And I managed to finish the baby quilt. Phew!

Mostly machine quilted, with a little bit of hand quilting too. I'm not sure if you're supposed to mix the two things together... but then I never follow the rules.....


  1. I love little M's bear hat. It is truly gorgeous!

    Well done on that gorgeous baby quilt. What a lucky little baby.

  2. Beautiful photos- it looks so lovely!Little M's hat and ofcourse himself... is just adorable and I really love the baby quilt.xxx

  3. love your little baby quilt! so cute! and don't ever follow the rules, it's just not fun!

  4. Love the quilt and hat.
    Really like the photo of the moon. Almost looks like an eye.

  5. Sounds like you had such a lovely and refreshing break. Your little one is just so adroable, especially in that hat! And what a stunning quilt - perfect fabric choices I reckon!

  6. I think you've done a gorgeous job. I'm all for leaving the rules at the door & doing what works. Just lovely.

    I keep seeing amazing quilts out in blogland - I really should start making one soon - it's not like I don't have all the supplies!


  11. I thought the moon pic looked like an eye too!

    Oh, I want that beanie and if breaking the rules means you can make a quilt like that, here I go! :)
