Is it bad to hope that my friend's baby will be late? I can remember that being overdue was awful... and I would not wish it on anyone, but I do not think that this is going to be ready for when the baby arrives. I am making progress but not quickly enough - and yes it is the simplest quilt of all (5 big strips of fabric). But it is going to be so cute!
Here are my fabric choices..
1. (backing) Koi - Smile and Wave in Reed; 2. Happy Drawing Elephants;
3. Free as bird | Pollen, Up, Up & Away; 4. Botanics: Graph Paper Garden in blue
The quilting is very simple, as I really wanted to focus on the fabrics. I did consider FMQ .. for 5 minutes ... and thought better of it. It is not for me, so I am going for safer grounds here.
I am totally getting ahead of myself here - because I have a long quilting way to go, but I need to think about the binding - what do you think guys?I cannot get gold out of my head for some reason...
In case you wonder she is expecting a boy... I know there is blue fabric in it but I do not think it is really gender specific.
As it is Wednesday, and this is actually a quilt, I am linking up to Freshly Pieced today.
