Baby quilt the umpteenth

I love making these little square(ish) baby quilts for new babies to our lives. So much fun, so quick, so useful to try out new things, so good at using up scraps and fabrics I love but don't seem to want to have in my house (e.g., anything orange!). This one I managed without pins (except for the binding) and just using my presser foot to measure seam allowances. Super quick, super easy. And kinda cute.

Fabrics are an assortment from my stash, the backing fabric is from Ikea. The quilting was inspired by Red Pepper Quilts, and one of the first times I've quilted 'out of the ditch', which is actually much easier to look tidy than I had thought. Photos are terrible and taken on my phone, but at least this way I actually blog them!

Our garden highlight this year (not hard - it was a dismal year in our garden) - climbing mini-pumpkins called Munchkins.

I have no idea how they taste, but they look amazing!

On my mantlepiece...

We went to France. Amongst other things, they have the best yoghurt pots in the coolest colours. Cheap decor update!
