Two quilts for PNG babies.

Ken stayed in bed all day today because he has caught a head cold and doesn't want it to get worse.  At least he doesn't have to go to work now, so he can stay in bed all week if he wants to!  It leaves me free to do my thing without him distracting me with requests for this and that..
The weather in Melbourne was very unpleasant, to put it mildly - extreme wind, rain and cold.  So it was a good day to stay indoors and get some sewing done.  I've nearly finished these baby quilts now - the first one has been quilted and just has to have the binding done.


I've used a different technique with this quilt - the 'envelope technique', so it doesn't need binding.  All I have to do is quilt it, and sew the last side up.  I love that fish fabric; it was an offcut from somewhere, maybe the opshop,  I can't remember.  But I knew I'd find a use for it one day!

Looks like you made the most of your sewing day. I've only done quilts like that a couple of times, it certainly makes things quicker

lovely little quilts and a good way to do a quick project.
