I've already made a quilt for Cinco (yes, this will be our fifth grandchild and we don't know the gender) and given it to our dear DIL. But I continue to think about baby quilts.
Like the pattern on the left, for instance, which is a group of blocks that Marsha made. I don't know what Marsha's plan for these blocks might be, but don't you think that design would be darling for a baby quilt? I do. And, in fact, have picked up a couple of Aneela Hoey charm packs for just such a purpose.
Ever since I bought Emily Cier's Quilt Remix I've loved what she's done with the pinwheel block and wanted to do an interpretation of it. Prolly will mean -- gasp -- buying some fabric. But maybe not. What would you think about batiks and black for a [somewhat sophisticated] baby? With these pinwheely bubbles? Is that too bizarre an idea? Or should I hit The Old Country Store next weekend when I'm out at White Oak? Brutal honesty is needed here. You know I don't want to shop unnecessarily!
In any event, get ready to see some baby quilts here in the next couple of months. And to read a Big Announcement when Cinco arrives!
