Baby Quilt finished...

Stitched down the last of the binding tonight - phew a week ahead of schedule :)

This is a baby quilt made from the scrap box. I've made for my hairdresser who is expecting her first baby. My hair cut and colour is with her is next week (her final week before she takes leave), so I am looking forward to giving to her (along with the wee rabbit I made). Fingers are crossed she will like the quilt and use it :)


Update: My hairdresser and her partner had their baby girl 19 May (3 wks early) - baby and mom are doing great. And my hairdresser loved the quilt!

Now I need to get cracking and make two hanging sleeves and attach to the two quilts that I'm entering into the Capital Quilters Exhibition - we need to hand in the quilts on Sunday ... love working under pressure!!

Thank you too for the kind thoughts and wishes, after I told my tale of the bucking bike! The bruises are coming out in their glory and the boob is less sore! Still haven't been brave enough to try out the new shoes and clip pedals... got side-tracked helping DD2 with homework tonight... well that's my excuse!

Tomorrow night am going to see Allyson Gofton at a charity evening (for Te Omanga Hospice), Allyson is promoting her new cookbook "slow".

Righto "The Good Wife" has just started... gotta go!

Hugs

Hi Julz, that quilt is fab my dear and oh so much more stimulating than the regular baby pink and blue. I'm sure your hairdresser will love it - what a lovely thoughtful thing to do for her.

Lucky hairdresser. I agree the colours are vibrant and won't show marks.
You will have the perfect excuse if meals are late from now on,you learnt how to slow cook!
