Wow, thanks so much for your lovely comments about the quilt!
I thought it might be fun to show you the other two quilts I have made. Seems like I'm averaging about a quilt a decade. First, there's the quilt I made in the 80s, when I was a teenager. I cross stitched these itty bitty little squares, then later made them into a cot quilt. Actually, it's more of a bassinette quilt. It's only small. I didn't have a pattern for the quilt and just made it up as I went along. I had a pattern for the cross stitching of course.
Here it is in Tassy's bassinette in 2002, when Tassy was still cosy in my tummy.So that was the 80s quilt. Then there was the 90s quilt. I didn't really have a pattern for this one either. I found a pattern in a magazine for making the pinwheel block, and just kept making more and more till it seemed like it might be the right kinda size for a single bed. This turned out really well and I still like it, but I REALLY don't like the colours. I am totally not into "country" colours. One of my friends recently called this "The Autumn Quilt". That sounds so much nicer than "The Nineties Country Quilt". I put it on Tassy's bed occasionally - I like that it's homey and handmade. It totally doesn't go with her pink room tho!
So that was the 90s quilt. And I just finished my third quilt in time for the end of this decade. Now I have ten years to make the next one. :)
