Sugar and Spice!

This quilt has been a while in the making...
First I did a fabric charm square swap with some friends in August 2007.
Then I used them to do a Disappearing 9-patch tutorial.

Progress was made in August 2007

The left over blocks made this sweet little doll quilt in September 2007

Then progress was stalled...It got put away for a loooooong while...then a friend had a little girl and since I made her sister a quilt she needed to have one too.

I added the three borders and then it kept getting moved to the bottom of the WIP pile...I was stuck!

Then Emma was looking for a quit top to practice her new quilting skills...I very generously offered her the top to do what she liked...and like she did!

Then I saw the intended recipient's Mum last Saturday and she actually asked about the quilt (I started the quilt conversation...she wasn't being rude) which reminded me that that I added the binding last month and it was just sitting on the shelf.

Then with the cricket on TV tonight and the weather finally not stinking hot I sat down and hand stitched the binding on!

TaDa!! A finished quilt!

I love the binding on this one!

And of course my little helper...*sigh* so cute!

Oh WOW! Looks perfect! Great job AJ and Emma! The little dolls quilt you made the girls AJ is still used daily on that same little white toy cot.
