Blue'n'Yalla Quilt

Finally, after much grumbling and grouching, the Blue'n'Yellow Baby Quilt is done!

The piecing went fine, and the stripes were an experiment with which I was reasonably satisfied, but I think next time I'll have them fanning out in all four directions. But the machine quilting was no joke- it took forever and I kept getting boggles. I just never seem to get the quilting quite the way I want it to look. I know my machine is nigh on twenty five years old, but that shouldn't be a problem...in fact I'm pretty darn sure the problem is Oul' Heckety here! grumble grumble...


I used a kanga cloth for the backing, pure cotton and attractive in itself. The yellows are mostly tie-dyed fabric from awhile back and quicte a lot brighter but I haven't got the knack of my Dad's new camera yet either...basically this post is a compilation of bishes!!

Ah well, c'est la vie en pays, as they do say!
