The baby quilt I have been making for my friend is now finished! And the baby is due any day now! I was about three quarters through the machine quilting when I started having trouble with my back so abandoned it for a while. Luckily, my rather wonderful mum stepped in to finish the quilting off for me so it would be done in time. Thanks mum :-)
As it's a baby quilt I figured it would be a good idea to wash it first and it's come out lovely and soft and crinkly. Although, looking at the photo, maybe a little too crinkly lol - maybe a steam iron wouldn't go amiss?! Waif certainly thinks it's good enough for cuddling:
Oh, and mum thinks I should call the quilt Golden Girl (it's golden and it's for a girl!), hence the post title.
I have carried on with the ICAD Challenge, though this week I struggled with any sort of theme, so they're rather a mixed bunch!
I did a doodly patterned one:
A silly collage:
A Greek vase pattern:
An extract from the Metta Sutta:
A quick Modigliani inspired watercolour portrait:
A doodle inspired by an exhibition by "Seven":
And a collage to remember today's visit to Blickling Hall:
The boys have also been joining in with the ICAD Challenge and you can see their cards, as well as all mine, in my Flickr set here. This week will see us half way through the ICAD Challenge, how shall we celebrate our achievement?!
