I made good progress with the red and white cot quilt on Sunday and just have the borders to add as well as machine appliquing the baby's name on their quilt. It's for baby Scarlett so of course it's in red and white. I didn't want to have too much plain white as it is for a baby afterall and they can be messy. LOL
I used Cat in the Hat fabric for the centre star and also had some fabric with kid's prints to make it more child friendly.

When my new sewing machine arrived yesterday just after lunch, I wasted no time in getting it out and becoming acquainted. It sews very quietly and is a lovely machine to use. I have made half the blocks for the next baby quilt before I had to work last night. I'm using a jelly roll with a few more brights added and I hope to get it finished in the next few days.
The jelly roll is of bugs but I also added some little cars and Dr Seuss fabric so it's not too matchy-matchy. I found the pattern on the internet and it wasn't hard to work out how it was constructed.

 I've also started to join more hexagons together and want to get it finished while I have time as I have more WIPs and UFOs I want to finish while I have time.
 Thank you very much to everyone who took the time to comment and thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Jan Mac
