I have had this little baby quilt finished for a while, awaiting the arrival of the special baby it was made for. On Tuesday my friend Erin from Seven Little Australians and Counting gave birth to their 9th baby, a healthy baby boy! Congratulations again Erin, PC and family!
Last night I had the privilege of visiting Erin and baby in hospital and was able to give her this quilt, so now I can show you some pictures of what has been hiding in my cupboard.
At this point I wasn't sure how to complete the edges, thinking of maybe making prairie points as I did with this quilt. However I chose to finish it differently and have been happy with how it turned out.
I quilted it using stippling around the outer edges and straight lines over the main section, highlighting the pinwheels, more easily seen here on the reverse.
I love the mix of fabrics, especially the ladybugs, chosen to be suitable for either a boy or girl. I'm pleased it now has a new home with a precious family and the baby it was sewn for. I really enjoy being able to give something I have made myself.
