Thanks for the Inspiration

Hi Ladies,

you really inspired me to go back to my sewing machine and start the baby quilt. I could think about not doing any quilt for this baby after I cross stitch months for the older brother. He needed to have something from Aunty Isa!!

On Saturday my lovely husband "donated' his time to take me to a quilting store where I dropped of my first quilt to be quilted. The quilt is for the daughter of the guy that does my hair. she was born with a very rare cancer and she spend her first 18 months undergoing chemotherapy. I thought that a quilt with bright color would have great for her.

Anyway back to my project I set up my sewing machine and started quilting the baby quilt for my grandnephew. I first decided for a modern pattern with green/yellows/turquoises. While speaking to my niece she very politely told me that, even if green is her favorite color...they boys room is all white and blue!!!! So back to plan B. I had already in the house some Wyndham Story Book fabric so I bought another one at the store and stared cutting.

Today I finished the center quilt and I am still deciding which which color to use for the border. I will probably go with a blue.....but any suggestion is more than welcomed.
