Cath Kidston baby quilt

I had a great time in Devon with the grandchildren. It was lovely to do some school things which I never got to do with the twins while I was working in school as I was only able to visit during  school holidays. But this time I got to visit the twins' new school...it is lovely with a new eco friendly built building, lots of great outdoor activities and a toddler group on Monday mornings which is linked with nursery and reception class so Gilby gets to share some time there with the girls...not that they are particularly interested as they are busy playing 'chase'!
I was also able to visit Gilby's music group with him which was really good fun and it seemed he enjoyed having Mummy and Grandma all to himself :)
I have just started on the Cath Kidston baby quilt. I am going to use a 'new to me' method of layering and binding on this quilt. I wish I could find the link where I found this idea. I have printed off the actual method but didn't write the blog where I found it. Sorry. I will photograph and post the method as I go along. So far I have just joined and ironed the squares and cut out wadding and backing which is lovely, soft, white brushed cotton or as some call it, flannel.

Lindsey - I have had my last three emails to you undelivered (says that they cannot deliver) - do you know this? Just had the same thing happen this afternoon - other two were last week. Perhaps your box is full? Maybe a problem for others too?
Anyway - pretty quilt!

What a pretty way to design a quilt and what beautiful fabric! It will be a masterpiece when finished.

I made a similar quilt for a friend's grandchild, using a mixture of CK and Laura Ashley squares which I bought ready cut.
Thank you for visiting me, it is good to meet new friends who are likeminded.

The colors are beautiful - almost vintage looking.
