gone quilting

while the babies have been sleeping peacefully like this……

I’ve been quilting….2 nights (I fell into bed at 12.30 this morning) and 1 morning have produced this quilt top which is the Candy Shop quilt from this book….I’ve used Midwest Modern and Farmers Market fabric in lovely shades of pink, red, green and yellow and white quilters muslin which will be stitched with cute flowers, cherries, dragonflies and butterflies….

I’m taking a break from it this afternoon to catch up on the housework which has been somewhat neglected over the past few days and to give me some time to find the perfect backing and binding fabric since this is my first ‘big’ quilting project….

more progress to come during the week.
