Quilt first seen on Missouri star quilt company you tube tutorial.
Sean like that it was modern in design and had a three "D" effect. Has been time consuming even though it looks and is simple in design. Loads of cutting small 11/2 inch squares and strips. But is coming together and will be another stunning quilt full of color and movement.
Hoping to be ready to hand over in May this year nearly 6 months late. But in my defense he only pick it out in February this year before leaving for Melbourne. Will try to get it to him before he spends to many cold nights without it. Think the colors alone will cheer him up.
Top completed ready to send off for quilting.

I quickly went into my sewing room and whipped up these whilst waiting for visiting hours to roll around.
One Bunny Rug...One Burp Cloth.
Amazing what you can make with a metre of fabric and some lace.
Carmen has already said she would appreciate more burp cloths. lol.

Our gorgeous little granddaughter was due to be delivered by caesarean section on the 23rd of March but, she had other plans for her parents.
My son Bryce had just returned from a 7 week work trip to Melbourne, and was home for a total of 3 hours before her arrival.
Isn't she just the bees knees.

But Mum has just informed me that her theme for the new arrival is Bunny's. With only days away l will not have any cute little bunny's made.
So my ducks will probably turn into UFO's for a while. lol.
I am a lot happier now with the end results.
This quilt is going to a very special little boy called Gerrald who turned one in January. So l am a bit behind the delivery date but l am sure that is not going to be a problem.
Put the binding on the quilt on Friday night with friends.

The initials are made from craft board heavier than the ones used below which are made from cardboard.
Think l prefer the cardboard one as the glue seems to hold better and drys quicker. But loving the pink in the house.
