Before I headed up the road, and after making a basic school girl error cutting out fabric for Sue's FQR Kinky Bee blocks (note to self: try read the bleeping instructions!), I decided that the safest option was to put the rotary cutter away and sew on some binding. And so, Evie's quilt was finally bound, washed and dried in the late summer sun...

It's made of 5 1/2" blocks of Flea Market Fancy, backed with some City Weekend (Oliver & S) and bound with kona red and some left over binding for JoJo's quilt (Innocent Crush I think). I like it's patchwork simplicity. I'd like it to have been a bit bigger but it is bijou. It was a commission piece but as it's Evie's 1st birthday soon, I'm going to gift it to her. She's such a cutie pie.
A big thank you to Sue for sending me some more fabric after messing up so badly - you're a star Sue x
