Baby Boy Quilt

Standard

I am feeling a bit guilty for being away from the blog for so long! It’s a bit like when you haven’t phoned a friend for a long time and you know you should have done and the longer it goes, the harder it gets.

I got this fabric a few months ago when a local patchwork shop was closing down and I just couldn’t resist it. Well the baby I started making it for is too big for it now… but luckily another baby boy has come along in the mean time so he will now be getting this one!

I decided to keep it really simple and make it out of six blocks.

A little bit of sashing around the blocks and using up all the offcuts for the outer border and this is how it turned out:

I am just waiting for it to come back from my quilting lady, Natalie who will be quilting a kite design in pale aqua all over it – can’t wait to see it and I will show you how it turns out.

So many crafts to do so little….everything; time, energy, courage. Oh well, We just keep plugging along, don’t we. Have enjoyed reading your blog and I hope you continue to find something of interest at mine. Hugs, MH
