Baby quilt WIP


Snapped just before Seek and Destroy came to totally mess up the shot! You can see a little hand in the corner. I saw her on the way at her superfast pace so had to hurry and press the button before my quilt top was no longer looking like a quilt. The quilt top just needs a name appliqued in the centre and some borders before it can be sandwiched and quilted and sent in the post along with the matching giraffe (made from the Audrey and Maude pattern Helen sent me with the DQS) for a new baby boy.


I surprised myself. I'm the slowest sewer arond. But when I got the chance to sew all night, I didn't mess around! I made 1.5 blocks during the day withkid interruptions and the rest last night. I love the colours in this quilt - the white, creams, naturals and chocolates are left over from Maddy's quilt (still unbordered & unquilted....) and the blue is the perfect cornflower shade. This one will be called "Milk and Cookies" as the blue and white together reminds me of those milk jugs striped with blue that you see in adverts, and the chocolate and natural - choc chip bickies of course!


More detailed shots of Gilbert Giraffe to come when the gift is all ready to send.

Perfect for a new baby boy! Love the colours. It is amazing hoe much you can get done uninterrupted!!

Amazing alright AJ - Maddy didn't stir until 11pm. We had a half hour screaming match again. I am thinking that she is intolerant to something I am feeding her as she just gets histerical for a while, not even cuddles fix her then suddnely she stops, farts and falls asleep in my arms. After that I was determined to at least finish all the blocks!

Love the colours - looks so crisp and fresh! Sounds like a pain in the belly is waking her all right. I found "bicycling" my kids legs sometimes helped shift gas. Hope you get more interrupted sewing time.

Oh yes Joy those colours are delicious! We have a Mr Seek and Destroy here. Hope work went okay. You need to update your profile :)
