Last night we went out to dinner with the netball girls, and their families, and afterwards I worked a little more on my applique blocks, so I don't really have anything new to share with you.
Instead, since Cam has been dragging it around the house this morning, I thought I'd share his Rocket Quilt with you. I should keep a diary, I either made this one early last year, or late the year before. I was lucky enough for this quilt to be commissioned into Quilters Companion magazine last year too. Cam just loves it, and it is always either on his bed or being dragged around with him.
The applique on the quilt is fusible rather than needleturn which I prefer. I machine blanket stitched around the pieces with a metallic silver thread which looks really cute. The body of the rocket is made with sparkly silver fabric, and after repeated washes it's somewhat less sparkly than it used to be, and the rest of the quilt has a bit of a sparkle to it!
The main blue fabric in the rest of the quilt has really cute planets and stars on it, it's by KP Kids. I had a lot of fun making this quilt, so it's wonderful that Cameron loves it so much!
