Pink quilt for great-granddaughter

Folks I'm afraid I've been so slack in reading your posts, but you can see from my post title that we now have a new little one in the family! She arrived safely in the early hours of 28 November.

There had been concerns that she may be very premature due to a number of reasons, however grand-daughter went full term! Baby is very well, a good 9lb 6ozs at birth and a little beauty, sadly her mum has been quite unwell during and since giving birth. She is still in hospital and may be for some time to come. We have been very worried about her, still are and hoping for a good recovery.

All I have been able to do is make the quilt top for the little one amidst the many telephone calls and texts between all the families, I took the top out into the garden earlier, brilliant sunshine and yes, the grass is really that green here at the moment!

The top measures 34" x 44". Kaffe Fassett fabrics are Foxgloves left and right and Waltzing Matilda in the centre with quite an old pastel print, the name of which escapes me at the moment. Also can't recall the name of the lighter fabric with the Foxgloves! Tula Pink fabric is the delightful pink with tiny rainbows. Yet to decide on the backing but I think I may have enough of the Tula. Next week I hope to machine quilt.

That's all from me right now, I hope to spend time tomorrow catching up on many of the posts missed from you all.

Until next time, which I hope will not be too long, happy quilting and keep well.
