Baby George has arrived and he is totally gorgeous....and big, weighing in at 9 lbs! He`s my cousin`s baby and I`m hoping to catch up with him and his mum and dad when Zaki and I are back in England over the holidays - just 5 more sleeps before we`re off and I have so much to do!
So today I finished the top of what will be known as the 1001 Sleepless Nights quilt (it`s not that bad is it?) and while I like it, I don`t love it. I feel like it needs a contrast colour to shake it into life - perhaps an orange binding. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Like baby George, the quilt is going to be a healthy size and will really only be used in the coming few months for a bit of rolling on (I love it when babies roll) as it is far too big to put near a newborn but I like to give and receive something a child can grew in to.
In my ramshackle way of making quilts, I haven`t given much thought to the back yet but this baby needs to be on the plane on Saturday so a decision needs to be made soon.
You are of course a very clever bunch and guessed straight away that the fabric I had received was of course Echo in the warm colourway. To say I love it is a slight understatement. I ordered it from Julie during a manic sale over Black Friday when she had a crazy 20% off everything in her shop. It was a bit of a tussle and very hit and miss as to whether I would get some but in the end, all was well.
I have no idea what I`m going to do with it but it`s mine all mine!
Off to check out all the amazing crazy giveaways - so wanted to join in but didn`t get to make anything in time. Stupid flu.
