This weekend I have been busy quilting it, always a slow task. The bulk of the quilt takes time to guide through the sewing machine, but I am half way through and its starting to come together. I am excited to get to the hand sewing part as this is my favourite part...Adding all the little details and embroidering nicknames and messages. I think it is going to look fab.
Look at Ocean and her little sister!
Slowly sewing the squares into stripes.
This square sums up Ocean... a little Harbour beach girl.
(You know your a real local when you grow up on harbour beach.)

Quilting till I ran out of chocolate...(it really really helps you to sew!)
