You know the saying ‘cobbler’s children go barefoot;’ well my boys have absolutely nothing I have made. No quilts, no advent calendar- Sol does have a duvet cover but really, it’s a bit paltry! So I thought of making a sort of cheats quilt for Otis, machine pieced and just backed in fleece fabric rather than the proper quilt ‘sandwich.’ So, more of a patchwork blanket. I was going to do it in lots of random colours and to heck with a ban on pink (as I am becoming a minority here I need a bit of a pink floral fix now and again!), but I was browsing on Amazon and found this book:
It’s beautiful (and is now on my wish list!) and got me all inspired to do a red white and blue patchwork blanket, maybe with a bit of embroidery on the plain patches. I’ve chosen, cut and pinned the rows, and just need a spare minute to machine them all together- easier said than done with two little boys!
But the sling does help!
