Hubby came home from work a few months ago and announced he's found someone who wanted a baby quilt. Well maybe not wanted one but as his wife was pregnant hubby's work mate got told they were having one. I've got my hubby well trained to pounce on signs of weddings and births.
There was no real theme but the couple knew they were having a boy so something blue and/or neutral was settled on. The due date is end of September.
While away in Yorkshire I picked up these fabrics
I mean who doesn't like cute flying pups.
I fussy cut the panels to get three large squares and a few smaller ones. I cut the borders from the large squares so I could use the fabric somewhere else on the quilt. From the plains I cut strips and squares to use to border the fussy cut pups.
I made a few pinwheel blocks and log cabins as fillers and then laid it all out on the bed.
Now for the fun bit, filling in the gaps and putting it all together. I pieced it into three pieces
The bottom third
Top left hand side ( kindly rotated by Blogger)
Top right hand side ( again kindly rotated)
And finally all together and looking slightly different from that initial layout
It has since been sandwiched and will be quilted this week. How I'm not sure yet but I'm sure it'll come to me sooner or later.
