New Quilt for a New Nephew

The weekend before last, I was invited to take part in a quilting weekend. Unfortunatley I could only make it on Sunday (due to trip to Sydney-see post before last). I really enjoyed spending the day with some lovely ladies who were making some really lovely quilts, bags etc.
I made this from more of my Jungle Bungle fabric I bought from Red Raspberry Quilts.

The fabris is so cute!
I made the quilt top on the Sunday and had a go at quilting it last weekend. If I had more time I would have quilted by hand. BUT, I want to get better at machine quilting and thought a small project like this would be good to practice on. I am reasonably happy with the result.
Label went on last night.
I have made this for my new nephew as a little quilt to throw on the floor. I bit brighter than I would usually make for a baby, but I thought it might become a nice one to snuggle under on the lounge in his preschool years. So, I backed it with a really soft flannel. It feels SO warm.


  1. It's a great quilt for a little boy, I'm sure it will be well loved. A good size for practicing your quilting too.

  2. Looks SO pretty Raelee :) Love the fabrics

  3. What a fun and happy gift to give him! Glad you got,to have some quilting time with other ladies". Sew much fun!
