A friend brought me from San Diego, many years ago, some fat quarter bundles, from Walmart I think. I have always loved this bundle of pale blues and having been saving it for the right occasion. A little blue baby quilt with lots of plus signs would be great. But then again, I love this bundle so much, I may want to keep it.

Another good friend has always loved the Peter Rabbit stories by Beatrix Potter. Her hubby and first born are both called Peter, and said first born is now having his first baby. I was given this Peter Rabbit book panel some years ago by a friend of a friend who was clearing out. It would make a lovely floor quilt, cut up and alternated with crazy patches or a simple ladder strip.

The third baby is due around Christmas. Should I make a girl quilt or boy quilt? The mum to be is not particularly girly and very sporty, so I think a bright coloured, all colour quilt here. Her own mum quilts, so I may do a story quilt, lots of scrappy fussy cut squares for this, and make it floor sized.
Then again, it is a lot easier to trek down to Next or wherever to buy a few baby gifts!
yours in anticipation
