The good news is there is a baby on the way......
The even better news is that I don't have to give birth to the little love ;-). This is my long awaited niece/nephew, brought to my SIL/BIL with a little help from Science. The baby is due in February and I have started to stitch up a storm, finishing the baby's first quilt yesterday.
I finally busted out my Summersville stash and made a cute little baby quilt measuring 30" x 40".
|Plus quilt pattern, how I love thee!|
|Ikea backing again - I have a job lot! ;-)|
For the quilting I used my walking foot to crosshatch and then stitched either side of the seam in both directions, Red Pepper Quilts style.
I used Kona Pepper to bind, to give the quilt a nice frame as the Summersville prints are fairly busy
So there we have the first of many baby quilts and then I get to go onto the accessories and clothes, oh happy days!!
