A quilt for Tracy

Please allow me to present my latest little quilt offering: a geometric number in shades of green for my BB's new young brother:


I really enjoy making baby quilts and keeping my friend in mind as I sew. Sometimes people pick out a pattern or tell me a colour theme but I do quite like to give them a surprise as well. Tracy had picked quite a geometric pattern for BB's quilt and so I thought I'd choose a similar look for his brother (who is almost a BB himself - just one week off). I just heard from Tracy that it had arrived so I hope she likes seeing it up here too. Tracy is the one person who I know wouldn't mind finding cat paw prints on her new quilts, but I think that Scooty actually managed not to decorate this one himself. I should get him to 'sign' them on the back! The pictures were taken in Munchkin Gramps' conservatory - aren't they lovely and sunny? Just right for a quilt bound for California and its new little owner.

Your quilts are really lovely! Wish I'd had the patience to learn the craft. They taught us in high school but I was not too nice doing my project!

Thank you - that's really sweet! Funnily enough I didn't do sewing at school, but perhaps that's why I'm enthusiastic about it now. I just learnt from books so it's never too late...!
