Binding Baby Quilts

Some time ago, my dearest friend A. brought me a big piece of fabric left from the curtains of her granddaughters' bedroom. With it I sewed two little quilts and chose matching fabrics for the binding.

I prepared and sewed the binding this morning. I find the finished quilts very fresh and cute and I think the little twins' bedroom will be lovely.

You can find here my binding tutorial.

Knitting bag

The baby alpaga jacket is finished and already worn by my grandson M. I am pleased with the final look and most of all with the fact that it keeps the baby very warm!

In my tote I have a new knitting project. About this bag on the last photo, which you have already seen in previous posts, I did it using this pattern : The Twenty Minute Tote. I did many of such bags for presents, using Kokka fabrics and it really doesn't take more than 20 minutes to make one!

Although December arrived, we still have a mild autumn here in Athens. The colors of the trees are beautiful against bleu sky and sunshine.

I did a cushion with four leftover blocks and hand quilted it.

Wishing a wonderful December month to everyone!
