If you go down to the woods today …

27/01/2013 § 16 Comments

be sure to pack your Teddy Bear Blue quilt!




It’s all twinkly stars with gingham check, stripe and polka dot teddies tumbling around in every block.

I’ve used my favourite white flannelette as backing and a lightweight wadding in the middle.  We want little people all snuggly, but not boiling over! The binding is a simple blue gingham which is just visible over on the left of the middle photo.  I’ve just this minute finished the hand-stitching around the binding edge – phew!  And all in time for the 101st Handmade Monday too.

Can’t resist one last (will we have more?) snow photo of the collies earlier in the week up at Farley Mount …

Enjoy your handmade week whatever’s on your needles, hook or cutting-out table.

I’m preparing a talk on Scandinavian quilting too.  I have Trine Bakke’s Scandinavian Quilt Style book already – it’s one of my favourites, really inspiring and achievable projects; but if you know of any other interesting source materials, I’d love to hear – I need to impress!  I’ll share all the details when I know more.

Have a lovely week.
