Now that I've announced our coming grandchild :-), I thought I would flaunt my first item of sewing. I had the kit for this quilt in the stash for a couple of years or more and pulled it out the other day, thinking that now was as good a time as any to start baby sewing, although it isn't going to be my piece de resistance. Luckily though,I didn't choose pink - not that we know the sex of the unborn babe yet, although I am guessing it's going to be a boy.I am sure though that bubs will need more than one quilt. I haven't got very far with it - I think it will look good when finished but I'm not enjoying working with chenille and bias cuts. I have, however, found that the walking foot makes working with chenille a little easier. Hopefully the next time you see this quilt it will be no longer a Work in Progress.
