I'm slow but I get there in the end. Here is our nephew/cousin Emerson's baby quilt. Yes he is four months old but he will never know will he! The brief from Retromummy was red, white and navy. I went with a classic star pattern. Very American looking, I really like it.
I had to climb into a horse paddock to get a photo of the quilt on this post and rail fence. It sort of suits the quilt style don't you think? I had to climb in three times, the horse in the paddock kept coming over to see what I was up to so I had to escape a couple of times. I think its friendly but I was only wearing thongs and was afraid he might stand on my toes. Give me cows any day. Next time I'm taking some apples to throw to distract him while I photograph.
For the backing I used some Sherbert Pips and a nice check binding. One minor potential disaster that I have to warn retromummy about is that I forgot to pre-wash the blue fabric. Eeeek. Hoping for the best there. Maybe cold salty water for the first wash in case the colour runs. Does anyone else have any magic solutions?
