A friend of mine is expecting a new baby soon, and so far the little scamp has kept their bits covered during the ultrasounds. I suppose they are modest?
I started off to make a gender neutral baby quilt using my 60 degree triangle ruler and pulling a color scheme to match this Van Gogh fabric I've had a long time.
In the end, I decided that one was too boy-ish. So I made a little girl quilt, pulling colors from a southwestern flamingo fabric I've had a long time. I think I must have found it in a remnant bin?
I found a bunch of too-cute fabrics for the front and some fat quarters to make the backing. Once the mystery baby makes their debut the other quilt will be sent to Jack's Basket to celebrate another beautiful baby. I delivered the quilts, along with an addressed envelope for Jack's
Basket, to the Grandma-to-be over Christmas so she can take them to the
Over the holidays I had about 3 weeks of downtime. A great opportunity to be surrounded by family, friends, dogs, and babies. I drank a lot of coffee, slept late, took the dogs for long walks and read a whole bunch of books. Now I'm back home and back to work and gradually getting back into the swing of sewing. I hope your holidays were also restful and enjoyable and your new year is off to a good start :)
