This one's for you, Baby Girl

This blog post is way overdue. The Baby Girl in question is only a teensy bit overdue, but in any case, when she does finally arrive (she will be my new niece), she will have this lovely quilt ready and waiting to kick about on.

I had a lot of fun making this quilt, and was amazed at how it came together - I just followed Kelly's very clear Purse Strings directions and voila! A quilt emerged! I had fun collecting fabrics. The Giraffe print was the one that got me decided on the colour scheme, then of course some pink.

The fact that there are leaves on the trees and sunshine in the garden tell you just how long it has taken me to get these pics up - although I didn't want to spoil the surprise by posting until after the quilt had been safely delivered to my little sis.

I like the back too - it's cheerful don't you think?

 And the obligatory rolled quilt shot, modelled by my 80 year old Singer Rocket. Which I have recently had cleaned and fixed - I will get to use it over Christmas!
So come on Baby Girl, we can't wait to meet you - and I hope you like the quilt your Auntie made you.
