What is that Mother of mine up to now?

I am back to my computer after weeks of travelling around. Spent some nice time catching up with Mum & her quilting. She has been working on this cute little cot quilt for one of my nieces.
It is made from Anna Griffin's 'Mackenzie' fabrics. We pinned it ready for quilting late last night.
We struck some trouble when we realised we hadn't purchased enough backing fabric. But with a little creative improvisation (& a whole lot of inspiration from here and here) we cut up every tiny scrap of left over fabric from the quilt top & pieced the back!
I really love it! And there is something very satisfying about using every last smidgeon of fabric in a project. I will post some better photos when Mum finishes the quilting. No pressure Mum!
So, I'm back to my poor neglected little blog. Now to get back to my sewing machine! Love to you and yours, Bloom x
