Another Foxy finish!


A very special baby quilt had been on my 'to-do' list

for quite some time now.

So I finally settled on this pattern...


from Anna Graham's book "Handmade Style."

A modern, simple design for a modern mum!


Soft green and peach were the designated colour 

palette....



which has left it open to be a quilt for a girl or boy,

don't you think?


At this stage it was a square...

but I am happier with a rectangular quilt,


so I added a peach border all the way round, 

and a piano key border to either end ....



with the leftover 

grey and white pieces.



I kept the quilting simple- to straight lines down the 

length,

Binding in waiting...
Love this print- very appropriate for a baby!

to maintain a certain softness.

"Nature Walk" by Tamara Kate on the back too

And more of this paint style print for the back!

Now I need to wait for baby to be born,

before I add the label!



Looks like everyone will be left guessing...

From today's baby shower....

Happy days!
