In the June edition of Down Under Quilts that I picked up a new weeks ago, there was a challenge to make a baby quilt for the Blankets of Love programme. Such a lovely idea, I have been blessed with two happy and healthy girls, I can only imagine the heartache at loosing a newborn, so I signed myself up.
So part of the challenge was you sent away for a FQ which has to be used enough to be recognized as the main colour. I recieved a red fossil fern print. Not usually a fan of fossil fern stuff. It has to be an original design so thanks to that little quilting journal AJ sent me for my birthday, I came up with this little sketch.
The quilt has to be only 60 cms square and most importantly, it has to arrive in Sydney by August the 3rd. So I have 5 weeks to get cracking! I have piled those pesky log cabin blocks back up in a neat stack till I work out which layout I like the best. Torn between pinwheels and the very first one.
