A small diversion

I needed to do something fun and for me, well, mostly for the wee girlie.  I've admired what this talented lady does for a while and thought why not?  A lovely simple square patch quilt in fun bright spring colours.
 Just a small quilt, using fabrics only from my stash and simply quilted in the ditch.

... and then I cut it....

Five times in fact...

 But for good purposes.
 You see it's an old pram (made when 3 wheelers were a new thing), a hand-me-down that has been oh so useful but in desperate need of jazzing up.  In winter it has a sleeping bag (which can be seen here, gosh wasn't she small back then!) for keeping little bodies very warm and snug, but it's spring and I wanted to capture it in quilt form.  So to speak.
And the quilt-as-you-go dream?  It's still there, and I'm going to make a start.... soon.... honest....

  14. Love the fabrics you have used! Good prams are hard to find so it just makes sense to refurbish this one. Great work Jen! Hope you are feeling well. Ann :-)
