Stained QAL

Stained QAL



I have recently joined in with the Stained QAL with Sarah at Narcoleptic in a cupboard.   This is a crib quilt, which is just perfect as there are a lot of babies arriving in our family.  As we don't know if they are going to be pink or blue, I was looking for something gender neuter.  I'm not sure if I succeeded.



You know how it goes, before I know what has happened, I'd pressed the final button.  Only then did I wonder if it was the right one for the job.   Never mind, if not it'll make a nice wall hanging!

Just now got to decide which solid to go for


Orange                                              Slate                                              Charcoal



    


I would love to be brave and try the orange, but I think it would be a bit too much, so will probably go for the charcoal.  What do you think?

Also, whilst I'm here, does anyone know what this is?


 I found it when I was looking through the Fat Quarter Shop, making my blogger fat quarter choice.  In the end, it didn't get included, I was fiffing and faffing so much, but I really love the colours as a base for a quilt for our bed.   Can anyone tell me what it is?


I've had a good day sewing today - got the back finished for my Melly and Me quilt, and then managed to baste it too.  Hopefully I can get it quilted on Wednesday.   It's looking really good, although it's still a bit wavy - although much better than it was!

Take care
