A lovely gift

Hello! I should say straight off that the lovely quilt below wasn't made by me - it was made by the lovely Reene who blogs at Nellie's Niceties.

James' quilt - made by Reene

The fabric is gorgeous and it's the perfect size for a lovely play mat for James.

Fabric detail

Reene designed this quilt herself - isn't it fabulous. The pattern will be released together with kits for making it through Simply Solids in time for Festival of Quilts.  You can read all about it and see other versions of the quilts on Reene's post here.

In other news things have been a little quiet on this blog recently - it's been a challenging few months and I haven't been doing a lot of sewing.  You can't have missed the blog posts from everyone introducing themselves before the Fat Quarterly Retreat.  I made the difficult decision a few weeks ago not to go this year - the timing just isn't right for me.  I will be sorry to miss it and especially not to catch up with everyone but there will be other years! 


  1. So sorry you are not going to be at Retreat this year; keep all those baby-hugs for yourself xxx

  2. Sorry that we won't be doing you this year. Love the play mat

  3. Love the quilt! Hope you are ok! Better take it easy though, the first months without sleep are... Testing... And with the heat it is not helping!

  4. That Reene is one talented lass! So sorry you can't make it this w/e. Almost wasn't going to make it myself! Hope you are finding time for your own sanity among all the demands of being mummy! Jxo
