As the school year has rolled around to a finish, we have been inundated with school and work activities... more than I can ever remember. I am so glad that it is now all done with for another year - even though while I have officially finished up at work until the end of January, I will still be making regular appearances to catch up with urgent work requirements.
Hubby has requested that I make a baby quilt for a work colleague. So out came the books and patterns. I have some good designs for boy babies, waiting for the right person - now that my own little boy baby is a teenager and is taller than me! This little traffic sign quilt is perfect for a family involved with roading construction.
Of course I will be working with a slightly scrappier colour palette, although it all does hinge loosely around the green/red/orange/blue stripe.
And progress so far! I think this would be a great first project for someone new to applique. I have chosen a soft grey homespun as my background, which is hopefully a bit more forgiving and practical than a white background per the pattern.
I have now run out of fusible webbing... so off to the shop I must go before any more gets done.
