Angus' Birthday Quilt

Angus is a very lucky boy, look what his Aunty Alison made for his first birthday

Tuesday, September 1, 2009


I picked up this material from Spotlight the other day to make Angus a Christmas quilt. I am thinking about cutting up the blocks, putting a border around them and hand stitching. Has anyone got any other ideas that might work?


For the last two weeks we have been having a new bathroom put in. The light colours and clear screen have made the room look bigger.
