The DNP & Me...

A wee trial run with Gus' cot...

Wee Play love :)

The backing - a favourite Dick & Jane print.

This quilt has to be one of my all time favourites. I can tell you that wrapping this little quilt today to give to my cousin for her wee guy Theo for Christmas was pretty hard... a small part of me wanted to keep it. But our Gus will be out of his cot by February and with 2 cot quilts already it seemed a little silly to keep it. Especially when I made it for Theo too. So hopefully he will love it and it will get a lot of use. And I've still got a FQ bundle and 2 jelly rolls left to make a single quilt for Gus. I can't wait!

I love the disappearing nine patch. It's so easy but looks fabulous. I also made a table runner with the same pattern below for Aphra's mum and dad. They are so good to me. I hope they'll love the Christmas table runner. I had it quilted with an all over snowflake pattern (the same as last year) and I love it.

Now all I have to complete is another shorter runner. Although I forget who I set out to make that one for... Hmmm... I think it might be Gus' teacher. I'll have to consult the Christmas shopping list! Oh and I've got a quilt to bind tonight! I will post pictures tomorrow.

Just over a week until Christmas! Exciting! How are you spending your Christmas? With family? Friends?


  1. Such a fun looking quilt with those fabrics! Can see why you would want to keep it.

  2. Beautiful and happy!

    Merry Christmas!

  3. With both - family and friends, absolutely the best. I hope you have a great time.
