Oh Baby!

It's been a while since I've made a baby quilt, but I now have a wonderful excuse to make one. My brother and his wife have a new addition to their family...a beautiful little girl called Imogen. It was fun to pull out some bright fabrics, based around navy and lime with kicks of pink, yellow and aqua thrown in.


I love the plus quilt pattern, so quick and easy to whip up. These blocks are 3 1/2 inch finished.


Now to get onto the quilting.

Looks gorgeous. This pattern is one of my favourites to do. I made giant pluses in 6.5inch blocks and it went together so quickly.

Plus quilts are among my favorites as is your color sense, Cathy. Little Imogene is going to love her quilt!
