People power!

When I started this blog I never thought I would care nearly as much as I do about people reading it...
I kinda started it as a soft diary, a record of this quilting passion that was growing very strong in me.
I should say that over the time I have grown to think more about the fellow quilters in blog land and how they relate to me through my photos and blog. I treasure reading people's blogs and over the time I was home-bound with a new born baby, awake through the night to feed her etc, I was very very grateful to all these amazingly creative people out there who through their blogs kept fueling the passion and the new ideas in my head.
Needless to say I also really appreciate the people who have taken the time to look/read my blog and to also comment on my mad drivels!!! so Whoever you are out there, THANK YOU for being in touch and helping me feel part of this quilting community...
This week, I lost 2 people from my 'follower' group! eeekkkkk.  I can understand that people move on and I have been so absent...To those of you that are still with me, hang on in there!!! I am planning a few lovely surprises along the way!

In my last blog I promised some more photos of work I have been doing in the last couple of months:

First of all I finished Isabella's blanket, my first ever crochet project!!!! The photo is not great but the blanket is gorgeous and washable at 40 degrees!!!
 and a little detail:

The everybody jumped on the trips around the world bandwagon and I did not want to miss out!!! so I picked out the Happy Mochi Yum Yum which I had stashed and forgotten about until now...This fabric was pure sunshine but without some additional solids and some extra purples I would not had had the impact necessary for this project:
so this:

made me this!
it is massive and I could not face quilting it, so it has also gone off to Ferret. My husband loved it so much, he exclaimed that this is the best quilt I have ever made...he is a simple soul so he must be forgiven!

This is my Bee Europa quilt in the making. I adore how this quilt is looking already BUT that is all i got back from my fellow bees and I will need 4 times this much as I want it for my large bed...well, I guess I have to make up the rest myself! This is the Mod Mosaic Block from Elisabeth Hartman - Oh Fransson!blog.

 And this is my latest quilt which I just finished last night (this is just a preview on the design wall): I had got these flannels about 3 years ago and I have been wondering what to do with them ever since! Well, my husband has decided that finally this is his quilt....I don't think I can say no to his first ever request!!!
I have to say that this pattern was a lot of work for flannels (again, another large quilt), bit the effect is great and is the soft feel of the whole quilt....

The proof is in the pudding as they say...and here is my little pudding in her cot surrounded by some of her quilts and all her favourite cuddly friends on a flannel sheet made by mummy too!!! please excuse the stained leggings...daddy is not too much into pjs for the afternoon nap! well, this is proves just how comforting quilts are (never mind that Isabella has always slept very soundly!!!).

Well, before I go, where does time go? Isabella will be 2 next month...and I have to make sure she will have a completed quilt for her second birthday (because she does not have enough???)!
