The Home Stretch...

Top of a quilt that I'm working on for a baby girl. It's more cot-size, than standard baby size, cause I think she'll get more use out of it that way. It's bright and colourful, which I know she likes. Don't get your ruler's out, you should know by now that I don't work to those kind of exacting standards with these things, I tend to just use fabrics that I like, and cut as I go.
I'm still 'embracing the wonk'!
This is the backing, I've used a vintage sheet, that has never been used, so it's crisp and really thick cotton, they don't make cotton like this anymore!
I've been making some nighties for my Little P,
she likes them 'stretchy' so I've been using
jersey, which I rarely work with, and I know why.
Hat's off to anyone who sews jersey in a factory for a living! Actually, hats off to anyone who sews anything in a factory for a living!

The quilt looks great, love the doily! The quilt looks really neat to me, mine never match up, propbably has something to do with my rough cutting out, but I do like the 'home made' look!
