New Quilt for Baby Tebb!!!

One of my lovely friends Abbey and her husband Mark are having a baby soon, I saw them this weekend and took them a quilt for the new baby. it's a boy, in-case you couldn't guess from the colour scheme. So here it is...
I used my new Darning foot for my Janome sewing machine to free hand quilt, it came out pretty good I think...well I was pleased with it anyway.
This is the back, I think it shows the quilting a bit better.
I used the same "flying Geese" block for 3 squares and then just used the big blue dots for the other 3 as I felt the blocks were quite busy. I think it tied in really well though...
My Mitred corner - best I ever did them!!! I used bias binding tape, machined the front then hand sewed it to the back, I prefer to have all the stitching hidden on the binding!!!
Anyway, got to dash, Photos of the MASSIVE order of fabric that came back with my Mum from Houston to follow soon....


  1. I love it Ruth!!! It is the most dearest baby gift ever!!! Big hug to you!
