I started my new job so I have been working the last month. My spare time has disappeared and been replaced with a pay cheque.

I did manage to finish off a baby quilt for my cousin who is having twins! They are supposed to be two girls. And yes, I knew they were girls when I picked out the fabrics. Why does everything for girls have to be pink? I don’t understand how blues and greens are for boys, they are the colours of nature.

I had it rolled/folded up so it is wrinkly in the pictures. I haven’t washed it yet but it will most likely get pretty crinkly when I do.

It is a very simple pattern. The prints are Playday in Spring by SEI. Sashing is Kona Pacific. Binding is Kona Orange.

I love looking at the quilts with neutral sashing and classy binding,  but I always end up far away from neutral!

The backing is the elephants in rows on green used in the top quilt. The orientation for the quilt is reversed on the back.

The quilting is just shadowed on either side of the seams down the columns. I didn’t have much time so it was a quick way to make it happen.

The last quilt I did had denser straight line quilting. I liked it but I found the drape strange. I also suspected less dense quilting is warmer.

So now I have to make another. Oi. I have the prints cut out and that is it. I bought some extra white with the blue birds to use for sashing. I’m not sure how I can finish it in time because she is due in August. I am tempted to just make a couple of dresses, kimonos, softies or something small to go with the quilt. However, everyone says two quilts for twins.
