Meanwhile, I have been working on a baby quilt and have started gathering fabric for the quilt that I mentioned in this post.
First the baby quilt. A friend at work just found out that she is pregnant with her third, and it was a bit of a shock to her. Another boy and while they are happy about it, it truly was unexpected or not planned and will be a bit tough in that there other two are 5 and 7 already and on their way to being little people. But a baby will always be welcomed in that house, and I hope that a new little quilt will help. This quilt was tough to make in a few ways. First of all, I find that I have a tendency towards "girly" colors as my nephew says. Even my blues are "girly blues" according to him. So I wanted to make a boy type quilt and had this great green fabric with an old fashioned print on it. I picked out the brown as a highlight color and think that it worked well, what do you think? It may be hard to tell from this photo, but the brown is a sort of golden brown color - unusual for a baby quit but actually very nice looking.
I've started gathering fabric for my Kaffe Fassett quilt and the first shipment of fabric arrived and the colors are gorgeous and the fabric is so soft. I'm going to wait patiently until I get all the fabric in house and do this quilt carefully as I can't afford to make mistakes on this one!
Gotta go scan in my "Leap" and mail packages (if I can get to the post office thru this snow) and in general, get the weekend started.
