Baby Quilt Pattern.. too much work not enough quilting..
So I've been working on furiously for the last few days on a quilt from a pattern called Hip Baby by Bee Creative Originally I was going to make this quilt for me, but I never got around to it.. and well. I thought it'd make a cute baby quilt.. since that's what the original pattern was SUPPOSED to be for.. ha ha ha. la la la.
It's for my neighbours. Last night as I was sewing the quilt top together I had one of those moments where I feared I might have created something garish. It was late.. I was tired, the colours were loud... but when I awoke this morning and brought it to work to find a backing for it I reveled it the boldness of the colours.
Originally it started with an undying love for a few fabrics.. but this is the one that started it all.
I've been hankering after a few patterns. Surf Song by Eillen Wright, A gummy bear quilt and maybe some type of Union Jack flag... oh and I need to make a Maple Leaf Table runner as well for my mom who LOVES to dress up the house for Canada day.
