Thanks so all of the lovely comments about my quilt! It was so much fun to read all of your comments and remember so many of my childhood games. One of my favourite games was 'single mothers', where we looked after our dolls. Having 5 sisters there was always a shortage of 'husbands' around!! I also loved playing libraries where we would pretend to borrow books from our bookcase (sounds thrilling doesn't it!) We also spent hours on our grass tennis court playing 'wilderness', surviving on whatever we could pick from the fruit trees or veggie patch. It was wonderful growing up in a big family (except when we were bickering, which was pretty often - my poor mother!)
The winner of my 'Skittles' pattern and this gorgeous bundle of Saffron Craig's fabrics is
No 97 NancyinSTL Congratulations! Send me your address and I'll get these right off to you.
And the winners of the two pdf patterns are 116 MissM and 131 Jeannette. I'll email the pattern out to you tomorrow. Thanks so much for playing everyone.
By the way, the pattern's now available on my downloadable patterns page. It includes instructions for a throw size as well as baby size quilt. Kits are available from Saffron Craig, but this colourway has almost sold out, so you'll need to be quick. You can also get kits in the new indigo colourway.
Here's a sneak peak of my quilt for Blogger's Quilt Festival coming up in a few days. Do you have your quilt ready?
