Half square triangles cot quilt

As mentioned in one my previous posts (Fabric feature – Pezzy by American Jane) I have some projects to share that I made for gorgeous little Lilly, featuring the fabric form my last post: Pezzy by American Jane at Moda.

I’ve made two projects using this fabric. The one which I’ll share today is a little cot quilt inspired by a tutorial over at sew mama sew: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2010/10/october-11-crayon-box-quilt-tutorial-winter-peach-giveaway/

I loved this pattern from the moment I saw it, nice and easy for my inexperienced quilting hands, but also simply beautiful with the rhythmic triangle pattern. I enjoyed the process of making it and putting it altogether, and I spent a bit more time actually quilting this one than I did the last (Baby quilt), not too bad for my second quilt. Maybe on the next one I’ll venture into hand quilting!

Here’s some pictures for the work in progress and one more of the finished thing, hope you love the end results as much as I do!

Baby quilt

My post comes a bit late in the day, I’ve just come back from a long weekend in Belgium to celebrate my birthday (on the 1st of April, you know what that means…). I had a great time catching up with friends and I received some lovely presents (the main one being a brand new shiny sewing machine, more on that later).

So with all that celebrating combined with the glorious weather the past few days, I haven’t been very busy this week making things. The project I’ll share with you today then is a little baby quilt I made a while ago, almost a year in fact, for the first baby to arrive in our circle of friends. It’s more or less the project that made me discover how much I liked crafting, so it’s a very special one for me.
