WIP Thursday! The start of Caitlins Quilt

A new quilting project! Very exciting! One of the girls in my real life Mothers Group has just had her second child, a little girl called Caitlin. She is as cute as a button, love having cuddles every Wednesday morning with her. I am making her this quilt, in pinks and purples, is there another colour combination for a little girl?!

Its a pretty straight foward pattern, just squares made up in different arrangements. One of the sizes needed is 3.5 inches and it has been so hard not to dig into the beautiful collection of squares recently recieved from my EB Quilting buddies. I have only caved once so far, the bottom right centre square in that block! Recognize it?

The pattern is for 54 blocks, 7 of them are just a letter though, so really only 47. 8 done here and I have fabric cut for another 4 there abouts, so only 35 to go! Jo, if you are reading, what do you think???!

Those fabrics look fantastic -- the quilt will be beautiful! I shouldn't laugh about the stone up her nose -- but we've been having discussions with our daughter (ok, discussion is too kind -- but hey) about not shoving peas from dinner up her nose...

Atet! We actually got chatting to another lady in the ER who had stuck a pea up her nose! It was up there 3 months and began to sprout! Ewww!
