This is the fastest I've ever made a quilt! It was completed in one evening (all but the label) and that is because all the prep was done for me...

I won a quilt kit from the fabulous Mary and she includes everything - even the wadding, backing and binding! Thank you so much Mary!

I used simple straight line quilting either side of the seams in white thread and hand stitched the binding (one of my favourite parts).

She has these gorgeous kits available in her shop, along with vintage charm squares and her brilliant new addition vintage fabric tape! All really reasonably priced and honestly after making this quilt I recommend everyone get one of these kits just to have on standby for when you need a quick baby gift.

Mary is having a giveaway on her blog, so hop over and take a look! She's also planning a UK vintage sheet FQ swap starting in the New Year, there's a Flickr group here if you like to join and get more info.

Here's the funny thing about this quilt... by total coincidence that print on the left was on my bedding as a little girl and the one on the right was the pattern of my parents bedding!! Nice memories and fun to have them included in a quilt that was destined (as soon as she laid eyes on it) for my little girl!

I made her a little label in the shape of a flower and hand stitched it on with a blanket stitch. My little clown adores it!

Baby news: I had my appointment today and thankfully I don't have gestational diabetes, the scan went well too and although the baby is on the large side it's nothing abnormal!! I do have a slight iron deficiency but hopefully it's nothing some iron tablets and spinach can't take care of. Thanks for all your well wishes :)
