Quilt for a Baby Boy

Hello everyone

It's been quite a while since I last posted.  A few reasons for this - first of all we enjoyed a family holiday to the island of Ibiza in the Med.
This was the view from the hotel.  A very pretty island and we would definately go back.
I was looking forward to getting home and immersing myself in my sewing again but unfortunately I injured my shouder/arm lugging suitcases about.   After 5 days of intense pain, I am finally on the mend although I still have very limited mobility and sewing is out of the question.   Very frustrating!!!

So today I thought I would show you a quilt I was commissioned to make a couple of years ago.
It is all my own design and is machine pieced with hand applique. 
I really enjoyed making this one.  It is also hand quilted.
I used quite a thick wadding so the quilt would have a nice puffy effect.
Don't forget to click on the photos for close ups.

I have several projects waiting in the wings and I'm raring to go. My Bird of Paradise applique, Bonnie Hunters Virginia Bound top, waiting to be quilted and my magic lantern quilt which is also waiting to be quilted..   I think I will just have to be a little careful and not too eager or else my shoulder won't heal properly.
One thing is for sure -   I really miss my sewing.
I hope you are all getting lots done.
Til the next time....
Rhianon.
