Finished and already shipped off!

Note to myself: try to take better photos...
I finally finished the pinwheel quilt. Hooray! Took me only a year or so. I think I never needed that long to complete a quilt...
I have to say I am pleased with the end result. I really like the orange binding with the blue, brown and white together. Anyway, I shipped it off to its new owner in Australia today. I hope he'll like it.

Work in progress

I am happy that this quilt is almost done, it just needs binding. It's been quite a work in progress. I started with the blog maybe a year ago or so, and then I kind of lost the urge to finish it. But now I had some incentive to get to it again. A few years ago, when all my friends started to have kids, I kind of promised to myself to make a baby quilt for each baby. So far more I made more than ten quilts (I lost count along the way). So when a dear friend had a baby, I made another one and send it off to Australia. But her older son liked the quilt so much that he decided it was his from now on. So I thought I will just give the new baby boy this one instead...



I added the name this time on the back to avoid confusion of the rightful owner...

Finally!

After many, many month of reading and admiring all those creative and inspiring blogs out there, I decided the world needs another one. So from now on, I'll use this little space to let you participate in my adventures in sewing...
