? Better photos

The last photos were taken inside on a cloudy day so I tried to get a better shot today. The colours aren't great but are closer to real life in these photos.

quilted and the binding on

You better sit down! Yes it is amazing, I actually quilted something within a week. I kept it simple (and Probably boring) and quilted in the ditch. Not exciting but I can do it and it looks good. I just used a light grey Kona on the back as it is a wall hanging and no one should see the back.
Rhani is still very naughty-lucky she is gorgeous. She is allowed on the old chairs and loves them.

Cherri House Quilt Along

Well this quilt along is actually finished but I have finally picked my fabrics and plan to get together with a friend on Tuesday and finally start it. I could not resist using batiks with some grey Kona.
What do you think? The last colour is a pale grey but not as pale as it looks in the photo.

About Time

So I have finally managed to get some sewing done. This is the baby quilt from the pattern "There's a Square in There" by Kate Conklin Designs. I love this pattern but I did not have enough pale grey so I had to make the borders thinner. I really like it but I think I would like it more if I could have followed the pattern exactly. I want to quilt this quickly and hang it on the wall. Kate is a great designer and I follow her blog so I knew to buy the latest Homespun magazine which features another of her designs on my wish list.
