A gift for baby ….

20130422-210737.jpg

I know as soon as I post this photo, that its recipient will know who it’s for but half the fun of receiving a quilt is watching it come together. Particularly when the quilter is expedient. I have heard lots of stories in quilt workshops of children half grown before the quilt is received. Rest assured this little black duck is a finisher and a productive one at that.

I have to have my wits about me this year, I have two quilts of my own to finish, a 50th bday this year, and a 50th and a 40th next year! No time to procrastinate. I am: in one of the best age groups, my teenagers have blossomed into young beautiful women (semi independent), 23 years married and blissfully happy, professionally established and securely employed, I have more hobbies than I can muster and see early retirement in the horizon, my next gen in-laws are in the baby making years, what’s not to love! So, we can watch this space, for what I set out to share, patchwork and quilting. This quilt incorporates appliqué which I really love with some piecing. Plus my bet is …. it’s a boy! Happy Stitching!

  1. Thanks Hannah, I’ve just appliqued all those little duck feet, my head is turning! Plus it’s nearly 11pm here, time for my bed!!!

      1. Not for sure, but I can feel it in my bones that it’s a girl 😉
        It will be a gorgeous blanket either way.
