Ooooo, it looks so chic!  Really nice quilt you have there, I hope the raffle goes really well.  Smiley

Thanks guys!  It looked so much better in my imagination!  Roll Eyes  Though in fairness I am quite pleased with the accuracy of the piecing, just maybe not the overall result.  Mum gave it a thumbs up when she saw it this afternoon, so hopefully my sis will like it too.

I shall try!  XD  Tbh, as long as my sister and her husband like/use it, I'll consider it a success.  Smiley

Thanks for the kind words!  Smiley  I wanted to try and make something useful but not "babyish" (I'll make a quilt for the baby too, when I get a moment).

Thanks for the supportive words, guys!  Smiley  I'm my own worst critic - all I can see is all the bits I didn't do quite right.  Roll Eyes  I shall leave it around the house and see if it grows on me.  Also, I've decided that I like "irregular" French Braid but it would have looked better if the size changes had been smaller - the different strips are 1, 2 or 3" wide, and might have looked "nicer" if there'd only been 1/2" difference.  But I never did French Braid before, so it was all a learning experience!

My sister's first baby is due at the end of August.  There was some super-pretty seashell fabric in my FLFS.  And there was a patchwork class at the local agricultural show today.  These seemingly unrelated events resulted in this:






This is a bit of a weird project - it's the first thing I've made that I'm not sure I like.  Seriously, I got up this morning, took a look at it, and pulled a face.  What manner of monster had I created from those pretty fabrics?  I did still take it to the show for the lols and because I'd made the effort to finish it in time, but I knew it didn't have a chance really (especially when I saw how many other entries there were).  I struggled with pretty much all of it - there was no pattern, just a picture I found online (this one) and a handy pack of baby wipes to give myself a basis for the dimensions - and had to "save" myself from some pretty dumb mistakes with greater or lesser success, such as getting confused by the French Braid (I managed to make it too narrow *twice*!), fluffing the lining and orientation of the pockets, and wrestling with the plastic, which I've never used before and which was horrible until I remembered to turn my presser foot pressure right up!  And I really wish I'd just done diagonal line quilting instead of following the chevron shapes - I think it would have looked much better.

Loving the bright colours of the cushions, and the hexies are really cool too!  Smiley

I have a finish too!  (I hope I've put it in the right place - it's only superficially bag-shaped... o_0; )  It's another "unplanned" project, and I made the entire thing yesterday in an epic marathon of crafting (protip:  not recommended unless you don't mind making dumb mistakes when tired!)  It was an attempt to make a changing mat that didn't scream "BABY!!!" - I'm not wholly convinced it's a success....

Thanks guys!  Smiley

aimr:  Oooo, yes.  For some crazy reason, I hadn't considered brown. Roll Eyes  It'd be nice to keep it all batik if possible - I'll have a look and see what I can find.  Smiley  (And now you mention grey, I have a subdued grey/pink batik that might work for the back...)  Thanks!

Thank you!  Cheesy

Also, thank you to the people who voted for my entry - I'm really touched and honoured.  Smiley <3
