For days when knitting takes too long

Having not (for various reasons including being dog tired and having my nose stuck in a book for much of the time) picked up a needle of any description between Friday lunchtime and early Sunday evening I felt in need of a quick craft hit at the end of the weekend. I wasn't really in the mood to knit on the very fine alpaca gloves so I got out the fabric, cutting board, rotary cutter, and sewing machine and had a crib sized quilt pieced up by the end of the Antiques Roadshow (perfect crafting viewing).

I used the same pattern for the quilt top as for Laurie's crib quilt which I made last year but I intend to make the quilting a bit more fancy. I'll be doing the quilting by hand which will be good practice for submitting a quilt for next year's Festival of Quilts (apparently I'm already too late for this year!).

Lovely quilt! And I look forward to seeing your entry for next year's Festival of Quilts, you're so much braver than me (I still haven't started my first quilt yet).
