When I first started making quilts I would see photos of gorgeous baby quilts that people had made and I would think "Wow, has this person ever spent any time with a baby? Don't they know that they poo, wee and vomit on EVERYTHING?" Now I think, who cares - I'm not the one that has to wash it!
I loved making this quilt, and for some unknown reason decided I just HAD to make it in one weekend. So I did - the house ended up resembling a bombsite and the kids turned feral but, hey, I made a quilt in one weekend!
It's backed in this lovely baby-practical organic print from Spotlight.
I'm in love with this Angela Walters print for binding - machine sewn binding, because it'll spend a lot of time in the washing machine.
Subtle flying geese are very tricky to photograph, best done while still a WIP I think:
