The first quilt of the year - a baby quilt for a lady at church who has just had a little girl...
I wanted to do something extra pink and girly, but funky too....and so this 'Baby Chaos' pattern was born. I used a collection of prints from Moda, Amy Butler and Michael Miller amongst others - and backed it in Michael Miller's dots on the back.
This was the first time that I actually made myself handmake a quilt label too - and having done it once, I know it will be an addition to every quilt now, I love the look of a little label in the corner.
It has also motivated me to make labels for all of the quilts I sent home to England this Christmas, which will be nice to sew on by hand when we visit England in the summer.
Apologies about the poor pictures - I literally got the quilt out of the dryer and was sewing the label on in the car on the way to church - hence the badly lit photos (taken in the trunk of the car seconds before being gifted!)
Oh and another first for this year::
Jasper had a bath, after mama accidentally got a bit of quilt basting spray on his back (yes, I felt terrible) He took it very well and now resembles his old powder-puff self again!
