A quilt, a quilt!

Yesterday Brendan, Mil and I hopped in the car first thing, and drove to Herefordshire, eating a picnic breakfast en route, to go and meet the latest arrival in our family - my nephew, and Mil's third cousin... all boys!

And as far as I can work out, babies means quilts, and so I made a quilt... My first ever quilt! I'm pretty pleased seeing as it is a first, and I am looking forward to making the next.

All the front fabrics are American Jane Recess, and I have been coveting these for a while. The backing fabric was an old duvet cover I picked up in a charity shop.

It was a good day, the baby was a cutie, and the bigger cousins got to do some hanging out.

AAAwww, that is so sweet! You have made a wonderful quilt. Love the colours. I am no good at patchwork so I am very impressed. The last photo is absolutely gorgeous.
