Fishing for Geese: a baby quilt

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:

  1. Very cute. Sometimes it is cool to start and finish quickly!

    1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:

    1. Thank you so much for your comment, I can't reply directly because you come through as a no-reply blogger.

  6. Lovely baby quilt! I always include washing instructions with the quilts that I Gift because I want people to use them and wash them as needed. I love the scene you have created on your quilt!

  7. This quilt is just too sweet! I agree that baby quilts and made to be used, loved, and washed.

  8. Haha =D I always expect my Baby quilts to be washed a lot, so I machine bind them like you do. That backing is perfect!!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
