I finally had the courage to pull it down from my shelf last week and I decided it was too beautiful to leave with any bad memories... Lolly Logs is indeed, like me, making a comeback!!

It was made for Ryleigh... a gorgeous baby girl, born earlier this month to good friends of mine... I decided to make this a Quilt As You Go project... It is made up of 4 panels (fronts and backs)... here they are, ready for the quilt sandwich...
And here are the quilted panels... ready for joining... You can see how I do this in an earlier link here...
I'm really happy with how it has turned out...
Although I am quite particular with my piecing, I don't worry about little imperfections in my quilts... it adds to that rustic Antique charm I am looking for...

Finished size is 150cm x 180cm or roughly 60" x 70" which is not usually classed as "baby" size but I think this is a good size... babies grow so quickly and I want her to be able to use it when she's a toddler and in fact, it's a great size to throw over your lap at any age!!

Luckily, I was able to move my mobile cutting table and sewing table with me and "Built" myself new Book Cases and a Computer desk to fit my new space. I'm very happy with my new Sewing Room and Nina started purring away again yesterday when I started a new baby quilt (a gift for a friend)...
It's great to be back... and I'm hoping 2010 is the start of a new quilting life for me too... I hope to sell some of my work this year when I get the "gist" of Etsy... stay tuned for that one!! Lx

Samantha needed a Banner for her Grade 6 Confirmation at school the other week so I was "forced" out of semi retirement for a couple of days!!
It felt good... really good... Here are a few pics to prove life still flickers in the sewing room...

Twists and turns... Highs and lows... They say it's all part of life's journey. Life for us as a family unit has hit a hurdle and subsequently, I find myself headed down an unfamiliar fork in the road... and so, a new journey begins... I tell you... lucky I was good at orienteering at school!! Seriously though, I don't believe blogger is the place to be airing "dirty laundry" and that is not in my nature to begin with, so, you will understand my reluctance to elaborate on my story. Having said that.. unfortunately, blogging and dare I say it, sewing have taken a back seat for the time being... I'm still passionate about both and I'm missing my "nina" terribly, but my heart is just not in it at the moment... I will be keeping and eye on what all you talented people are up to though... So, don't worry!! I will be back... Bigger and better than ever... I promise!! Lx

My "Blue Squares" quilt has been laying around for almost 2 weeks now, waiting for me to finish (Well, start!!) the hand binding...
I had to wash it a couple of times... due to a slight dye run... but all is well that ends well...
Quilt as you go is definitely the way to go for me from now on...
