Perfect for a Baby Girl

After 7 or so weeks of school holiday time at and around home, I realized that while love may make the world go around, clean washing comes a close second :o)

Returning to work and school routines is of course on the one hand a blessing, on the other a blinking nuisance.  With the kids returning to school on different days, and me having a couple of sneaky free days up my sleeve, I treated myself to a new hairdo and a wonderfully relaxing facial and back massage.  All up - I probably feel as well rested as I have ever felt since having children!  Now that's a long time.

With the routines back to normal, I've been sneaking in a bit of sewing in the afternoons, and have managed to get my second baby quilt top (the little girl version) finished.


I had all sorts of plans for this charm bundle... but in the end I liked having the fabrics separated by the white, and cutting them into triangles made it just that much more interesting than a plain square patchwork.  This is another simple design that just suits these fabrics so well.


I chose a couple of blending fabrics for the narrow borders, which brings it up in size to 40"x48" - a good cot size.  I have plans for straight line quilting either side of the horizontal and vertical seams.  We'll see how that goes.
