Here I am again. I have even managed to bring some pictures with me.
The first is a picture of our pretty ornamental plum tree. It took us three tree purchases before we managed to keep one alive. So you can understand our pride.
The next is a common old marigold but I love them. So vibrant and tough and they coordinated well with the baby quilt following it and that is why I chose it. :)
Not sure if you can read what I have written on the label, I didn't have the patience tonight to play around in the picture editing program.
But here it is:
A baby boy for Brooke and Shaun
and for Kye a little brother.
I hope this quilt keeps him warm and let's him know
he's loved like no other.
I like to write a personal note it makes the quilt more special.
I love bright colours and could not bring myself to make the regular blue for boys or pink for girls. They are having a boy but on the off chance the scans were wrong this will be fine for either sex.
I made it much larger than the usual baby quilt. I don't think I am able to make a small quilt.
I quilted it simply with straight stitches.
This quilt has been built to withstand many washes.
Regular readers have seen the following quilt in its infancy. Thankfully it is now done. I am so glad it was very time consuming.
And another large quilt completed. This is for my bed and featured a most beautiful fabric by Moda called Chrysalis.
It was a real challenge for me, but I am pleased it turned out okay. A few mistakes that I tried to quilt out but I'm not concerned.
Swinging in the breeze.
I will be back soon for another chat, and I warn you it may be 100% different to tonight's. :)
