Finished Quilts

heigh ho heigh ho...

well, I've created my "must do before christmas" list and to be honest, I think that it would only work if I added 2011 to the end of the list title! So I'm being realistic and aiming for what I can complete in time for our annual weekend before chrimbo trip back home.  I should be able to finish the top for Maia's christmas quilt tonight (only one more strip to add):

using the new wave pattern by Oh, Fransson
Maia is a girl for pink; anyone who knows me knows that her auntie kettleboiler isn't!  So choosing the colours for her quilt was both really easy and really difficult for me (if that makes sense).  It's brighter than it looks too!  still, I've been wanted to use this Heather Ross Mendicino fabric for a while now and I think it looks good with the hint of green in the Monaluna Monaco fabrics.  I'm planning to back this with from great Heather Ross Rapunzel fabric from her Far Far Away II range:

purchased from a great online shop called M is for Make
Perfect for Maia and a calmer choice should Maia or her mum not be in a bright pink mood.  I hope to have the quilt done this weekend (another unachievable goal?).

Once this pressie is done and dusted, I'm planning to make some bags to give as gifts and more mug rugs.  I might even give free motion quilting another go *shudders in fear and intrepidation at the very thought*
