Well, a new LITTLE man, and a new LITTLE project...sorry the reality is not quite as saucy as the title sounds!
My neighbours and great friends were recently blessed with a new baby boy and brother to my best little mate Will. (Will visits often but I think he prefers my cat Harley to me!) When Will turned one, he received a quilt from me, so with the completion of one project (my string stars), I felt it's a good time to start a little quilt for Benjamin.
On a recent trip to Country Pickin's at Dural, a simple pattern was found, last weekend at Material Obsession the fabrics were chosen (many thanks to the ever wonderful Sarah) and a pleasant afternoon was spent cutting 5" squares and marking 4" circles for applique.
This rather evil looking tool is used to mark around the plastic circle template. It creases the sewing line and makes needleturning very easy.
The applique is happening quickly - such gentle curves are very easy. Maybe Benjamin will get his quilt before he turns one!
