Leigh's Quilt

Well it is Leigh's Birthday today – Happy Birthday sweetie...

This is the quilt that will be getting lots of snuggles very soon.... bit of a shame that I didn't get to finish it in time for today. It is not really a bit surprise anyway as he has been watching it grow over the past months.

Only have a couple of rows to quilt and then off to visit Amitie for some binding at the weekend.



Update 18-06-08 – The pattern is called Nimble Thimble, I purchased this as a kit from Addicted to Fabric in Canberra and kind of expanded it as it was not a large quilt.

Bronwyn asks how did I do the image in the image – I combined the images in Photoshop. Not a very difficult task alas not one that is easy to explain here, contact me by email and we will see if there is a way we can show you how to do this.
