This is the latest finished baby quilt. It was going to be for the school fiesta but a friend bagged it for a present, which is lovely, and now it's done so I must drop it off. It's a fair swap because she introduced me to Chat 10 Looks 3 podcasts, which is two Australian political journalists, talking about books and movies and tv shows that they enjoy with a little bit of life in general. And they put me on to Malcolm Gladwell's revisionist history podcasts, which are awesome (or the ones I've listened to are, I'm looking forward to the rest). Podcasts are good while you're sewing and trimming and ironing.
I did different types of quilting on each stripe of the baby quilt because I didn't think an allover design would suit it. And it was fun to try out different types of things. I went back to my shape by shape machine quilting book for some ideas. As ever - some more successful than others! I sewed down the binding while watching the Broncos v Cowboys NRL final last night - it went into extra time and was quite gripping. I don't watch footy much during the season but I like the finals.
