Funky baby quilt



A quilt for a funky baby? Perhaps. Here's the blocks from yesterday, with a border (or two) added - I went for a black border, then a multicoloured print on black - one of those fabrics I've had around for ages, but never been quite sure what to do with. I wish I had a particular occasion for this baby quilt as I really like it. But then again, as I haven't enough spare batting to quilt it up at the moment, perhaps it's just as well I don't need it for anything specific.

I also worked on a few blocks for the block lotto for November, but I can't show them until November, so no photo there. I am hoping to get more sewing done tomorrow - amazing, three days in a row!

Really cute quilt. Kind of non-traditional. I like it.

that reminds me that I have a top made almost entirely out of that Jungenstil fabric that is crammed into a corner of my closet because I hate the way the quilting was coming out... more than a year ago... I need to remove the quilting and start over -- black thread on black fabric! (that's why it's still in the closet)

p.s. received your very cute round robin today -- the best one so far!

You're so right Kate about that border fabric - the type that you look at in the shop, buy because it really grabs you and then you bring it home and wonder what on earth you will use it for until you drum up something like this and abracadabra it matches perfectly - it almost looks like you made the crosses deliberately to match it - great job!!!
