You are my sunshine from Granny Maud's Girl

I have conquered another UFO, a project that has been lurking in my sewing room since early 2017.

It started like this: my cousin was having a baby, so I thought I would make her a quilt. Without giving away my intentions, I asked her about colours and themes she likes. She replied, ‘I like yellow and cows’. I worried a yellow cow might be a bit tricky, so I was pleased when she added, ‘I like sunshine too’.

That short conversation inspired me to try to make a sunshine-themed baby quilt.

Octagon baby quilt from Granny Maud's Girl

With all the attention focused on my stepdaughter and her baby in 2019, I failed to make her cousin, my husband’s niece, anything for her newest arrival. Better late than never, right?

In December, I showed hubby a couple of pattern ideas from my scrapbook and pattern collection. Of all the options I showed him, he chose ‘Cameos’ by Fig Tree & Co. I do not know how many years that pattern has been sitting in my cupboard, so it is great to finally use it.

Another Stash Busting Project from The Quilt Rat

Okay, first of all let me clarify......it was someone else's stash...and I had help (thank you Susan). A few years back, a good friend showed me some wool fabric she was planning to rid herself of. She had been a rug hooker for many years but had pretty much given up that hobby for several others, so of course, I could not resist these beautiful hand dyed wools and said that perhaps I could do something with it. Well...guess what...it came to my house only to sit on a shelf until I finally decided I ...
