Updates!

My but I am a bad girl blogger!  Where does time go; it's already April and 6 weeks since my last blog post! 

I have finished a few smaller projects which I'd like to show.  First is a baby quilt for my nephew and his wife.  Unlike most parents-to-be these days, they have not wanted to know the sex of their second baby and while I quite like the idea of not knowing - after all we were not afforded this knowledge when we had our children - it makes it easier for colour choices for the quilter!  So now I have the task of finding yellows and greens from my stash of "stash packs".  Hmm a bit uninteresting and unfortunately I was very limited with my choices.  I made half square triangles with the 5 inch charms and a plain white fabric and this is what I came up with.



I quilted it with my favourite "Jester's Hat" pattern and little ducks in the border with their French Knots eyes!

Thanks for taking a peak.  More tomorrow....

Happy quilting,

  1. This is a darling quilt! It is the perfect quilt when the sex of the baby isn't known. And the quilting is lovely. ~Jeanne
