Baby Matthew's Cuddle Quilt

The first quilt I made for this soon- to- be- baby boy was quite large so I thought I'd make a second, a "cuddle " quilt & the larger one can stay in the crib. I used some of the bits left over from the original then purchased other pieces to make enough for this 44" square "Scrappy Twist" design from Bonnie Hunter & I even scrapped the binding. I now have it quilted, bound & labeled & ready to go to the new nursery.

Kind of eye popping isn't it?!


The back is minkeee and a lot calmer & you can see I quilted it with an all-over freehand swirl.

And just so there can be no mistaking the purpose of this little quilt here is the label!


My other finish this weekend was another little Koala quilt-the quilt that I gave away on the blog was mailed to Pat from Iowa & sent First class mail on March 19th. & still has not arrived. I will be mailing this off to Pat in the next day or so, but this time it will go Priority with delivery confirmation, I have had very good results that way. I had thought that this small packet would be fine First Class, see what I get for thinking?! Maybe it will show up before I can get this in the mail...............hmmmmmmmm.

So, Ros, if Pat gets the first quilt, you can just send the second one to me. OK?
