The Official Last Sewn Item

You’ll have picked up from earlier posts that I have fallen a little in love with my Bernina. Well, here is the last present it has helped me to finish this week. This is a quilted floor mat/quilt for my new niece – guess what her name is ???!!

The pattern is from the Moda Bakeshop by Melissa Mortenson although I just used bits of pink fabric that I had in my stash! Pretty, eh? Dainty and sweet? Check out the back, though!!

It’s a farmyard print !! I figured that she might appreciate having something fun to look at – and later play eye-spy or count animals. I am very chuffed with it, because usually, my quilts are …ummm…. somewhat delayed…. Like the wedding quilt for our friends who are 5 years and 2 children in…. Oh dear…. Guess what I need to finish in the New Year ??!

    Not to mention cushion covers etc! But,hey, I found a quilt that is nearly as old as you and not complete. Hey,ho!
    Seriously Kirsten’s mat is delightful. Glad to see you are improving the shining hours.

    You clever thing! I love this quilt and you’ve inspired me to think about sewing something other than a card at some point.
    Hugs
