Baby quilt

This is for a work colleague who is having another little boy (well, his wife is, but you know) - I think it was yesterday! I haven't heard how it went, hopefully all OK. These people who forget to let their work know the INSTANT they have a baby, such self-centredness. Anyway, this is obviously quite a straightforward single block - I think everyone was making it last year but I can't remember what it's called. I tend to save photos of things that catch my eye in random places and then flick through them when I need inspiration. It works well on the inspiration front, but quite poorly on the record-keeping and ever-finding-things-again front.

You can see I got my husband to hold this one up - one of the advantages of having him chauffeur me around. Hang on a second sweetie, can you just hold this, then we can go, promise. On toe news, it is improving markedly. I drove myself into work today, which was fine, although the walk from the carpark building to my office is just slightly too far. I took it real real slow, lurching from side to side. I looked like the zombie apocalypse.


  1. hi lynley. that block was called 'swoon'. don't ask me why, i have no idea. it was pretty popular last year, i remember that. i didn't make it then, but it has been in the back of my mind too. how are you doing on your moth in the window blocks?

  2. I like how you have quilted this. It suits your fabric.

  3. That's so lovely. Glad the toe's improving.
