Meet My Matryoshka

Meet my matryoshka, isn't she sweet?

But what is she for?
She's my daughters hot water bottle cover! OK so maybe a little over the top I have to admit.
But once I had finished my sons hot water bottle cover and was trying to decide what to do for my daughter, I just kept seeing a matryoshka. So here she is!

Thank you everyone who gave me wonderful feedback on my fabric choices for my sons quilt - I really appreciate it! I have decided to go with all the fabrics (which is probably best, considering I bought them all for this project). And I have taken the wise advice of Kate and will start off using a pattern to make a stacked coin quilt. I am hoping for that "pop" everyone is talking about, which hopefully I'll get using the red fabrics and white borders. I'll get on to it tonight. Please leave me a comment if you know of any good tutorials.

The hot water bottle cover you made your daughter is beautiful, and why shouldn't it be? The colours and fabrics you have chosen for your sons quilt are amazing. It will be just perfect with that gorgeous combination! Can't wait to see the progress shots.

Oh Stacey these are fabulous! Love the doll colours very much. Some things are worth spending loads of time on. Who cares as long as you like what you are doing.
