I've just finished stitching the first 2 blocks for the blue baby quilt.  It's going to have 9 blocks in total and will be about 1m x 1m.  These blocks are 25cm square.  The background fabric is white (bad photo!).

The theme is monsters and circles... its based on a wonderful quilt I saw on the cover of Australian Homespun magazine (Jan 10 edition).  Each circle has its very own piece of batting behind it... so the small blue gingham circle in the picture above now has 3 layers of batting behind it, with another final layer to come after the quilt top is finished.

I really don't like hand sewing, so am loving the machine stitching around the circles!
