Playing Catch Up & Little Pirates

I have been madly sewing and cutting my strips to catch up with the Postage Stamp Quilt along... now to construct my blocks. 48 of them...

The fabric is Look and Learn by American Jane Quilts. I love the primary colours and the vintage prints. This will be a quilt for Gus.

I think he will enjoy the I Spy cuteness of this quilt. And I am definitely loving the mish mash of colours together.

Here's my Gus as a wee Pirate yesterday at daycare.

Oliver had a fairytale dress up day and he went as Captain Hook. Gus went along as one of his 'mates'.

And here is Oliver - as Captain Hook.

The DH is a groomsman today as his best friends wedding. My Little Pirates are staying with their cousins and aunty and uncle! 4 boys in one house 3 and under. Should be a fun night ;)

I best be off to get myself organised and presentable :) Hoping to turn some of those strips into blocks tomorrow afternoon! Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Oh I hope you are having a great time at the wedding. How nice to dress up and have somewhere to go! I'm betting the little boys are still giggling in bed.

    Your quilt is looking great. How do you fit so much in and work as well? You must be super Mama!

  2. The beginnings of this postage stamp quilt are looking great! Love the colours too. Enjoy your wedding and I hope your boys aren't too tired tomorrow:)

  3. The colours in these blocks are looking lovely. That is going to be a beautiful quilt!

  4. this quilt is coming together really well...those boys are so cute!!!
