A Quilted Delight

I quite often see things on Pinterest, which I love and would love to make, but they would not have a purpose.  Sometimes I pin them anyway, hoping that an event or occasion will come up and I can get my craft on!

A few weeks ago I saw this tutorial for a quilted baby book.  I thought the idea was adorable!  It combined a range of skills; quilting, embroidery, appliqué.  Many of which I haven’t completed recently or for a number of years.  I can confidently say that I can do all three.  However, I haven’t done them for a while so this skill set is a bit rusty!

I have a friend back in England, who at the time of this creation, was pregnant but didn’t know if she was having a boy or a girl.  I thought that this would be a lovely gift as it is very neutral!  I was organised when I went shopping for the fabric.  I made a comprehensive list and tried not to overbuy on fabric.  Even though I did this, I still have loads of spare material left over!
