pink and orange

Hooray! After a very long evening on friday I got Holly’s hairbands done in time and I think they turned out much better than my trial run. She certainly looked very pretty at the party on Saturday night, and danced from about 8-11pm, only stopping for food or a quick cuddle. The party was a surprise for my mother-in-laws 60th, and it was a great evening, she had no idea and was very suitably surprised. Little sewing has happened over the weekend, I’ll be back to it later tonight I hope! So I thought I would show you the beginnings of a new project - after the blanket I made for my new little niece I have been inspired to make a quilt for Holly. I want it to be a mixture of something she will want to keep for a long time but that also gets used and not kept for special occassions. For a few weeks now I have been ordering fabrics, here are some that I already had and some of my new acquisitions. As you can see the colour theme is to be orange, pink and white, I haven’t decided on the final design yet I will do that once I have completed my fabric gathering! : )

Beautiful fabric! I have just made my first ever quilt as a gift for my nephew to be! I'm itching to show the whole thing on my blog but as my brother and sis-in-law read my blog I can't!!! Will be posting a couple of sneak peaks by the end of today though x

Glad the hairbands worked out so well! Love the pink and orange together too - that birdy fabric is gorgeous! Cannot wait to see the work in progress - the last one was so sweet!

The little hairbands are cute. They remind me of roses. What a smart invention!
and, the quilt looks like so much fun. The birdie fabric is one of my favorites, love the orange and pink, plus that this will get lots of use. I'm not one to set aside a quilt on a rack. I love using it so some of my favorites are looking tattered but I still can't bear to part with them. A well loved quilt gets so soft, it's even cosier.

Hey Harriet said...

I have made many things over the years but Sophie's quilt last summer gave me the most pleasure. It is used constantly, not just for sleeping, but also den making and playing on. Looking forward to seeing how it developes.
