Ceri from Inspired by Felix is a cute new mummy sharing her crafting adventures and love of fabric with us in Blogland. Check out her gallery here of cute projects. I love her interpretation of the Supernova quilt, so cute!! Check out this special gift she made for a new niece.
Firstly, huge thanks to everyone that commented on my last post - it was really really lovely to read all your comments which made me feel all warm and fuzzy :) I would say it was the highlight of my week, but then on Wednesday night I became an Aunty for the first time so you were pipped at the post!
Between Wednesday and the weekend I was frantically trying to finish the Supernova quilt which is a present for my new niece, Penelope Rose. Unfortunately, we haven't got to meet her yet because mum is still recovering in hospital (get well soon!)
I did, however, get time to photograph the Supernova in Mum and Dad's garden and request that they deliver it to the hospital for me. It seems it was very well received and to have my stitching efforts described as "an heirloom" was lovely! (albeit slightly scared that the thing might fall apart before it gets to heirloom status!)
Anyway, here is a quick recap (and this is the last time you'll hear about this quilt I promise). This quilt is made by taking part in the Supernova quiltalong organised by the talented Lee over at Freshly Pieced. I opted to switch the colours around so mine is a "reverse" Supernova in that the stars are plain and the background patterned.
The quilt is made up of 3" squares (plus borders) and measures 60" x 60". It's backed in a cute cherry print with coloured borders that match the front (oooo that bit was tricky!)
And here is sweet Penelope Rose on her beautiful quilt!
