While I was visiting my new grandson and his family, I finished hand quilting the border on this baby quilt. It is made from one charm pack of "Botany," with Botany binding. The yellow stripe is not from that line, but I saw it in the store when I bought the charm packs, and thought it went really well.
I quilted diagonal lines across it and then a garland of little leaves on the border. I believe you can click to enlarge it if you want to get up close and personal. I like this quilt, which is for Carol's grandbaby who is due in June, and I believe it to be gender nonspecific, the pink blocks notwithstanding.
I bought a second charm pack from that line and have been slowly making them into QSTs. I ordered some yellow background Botany for the lattices. I'd like to get it together sometime this summer, so that I can hand quilt it at leisure and have it on hand for when I need another baby quilt.
Speaking of which, the phone rang at 5:15 this morning. I sprang out of bed, knowing it was Andrew with news of Hambone's arrival. Alas, couldn't have been further from the case -- it was a wrong number from someone who was trying to reach the hospice program.
I didn't get back to sleep. Oh, well!
