Quilting Bug

So the quilting bug has bit!

After completing my last quilt I could just not get enough so off to my local quilting store I went. I bought some lovely charm packs and a new book, "3 Times the Charm" on how to use these cute little packs of fabric.

I was completely amazed that the patterns in the book just use one charm pack and some extra fabric to create the most charming quilts. For my first stab at the book I am making a quilt called Fiona and I am using the Coquette charm pack from Moda.

Here is an example of what my work station looks like at the moment

The awesome book!

All the pretty fabric!
Oh and I also went on a fabric shopping spree online yesterday so stay tuned to see what fabulous things I ordered!

Finished Object Friday

Okay so this finished object is not knitting related but it is just as comfy and cozy. I have finally finished the quilt I was making for my daughter (blogged about here and here)

This quilt is just so comfy to cuddle with but I do kinda wish it was a little bigger so I could cover up with it a bit more easily. I will just have to make a bigger quilt for me :)

I believe I do have some finished knits but I am coming down with a cold so this post will be short and sweet. Also next week I will fill you in on the inevitable Christmas knit list. I really hope I can get them all knitted!

Finished Object Friday

Pattern: Puerperium Cardigan
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Project link

For this Puerperium Sweater I choose to do it in a pullover style with short sleeves. I found that the first one I made as per the pattern was a bit much when dealing with a squirmy baby; there was just too many buttons to get done up.

 So now the 3 button version is great! And I think she likes it as well

Have a great weekend :)
