So, it was away with all the pink and flowery stuff that usually proliferates around here and out with Stanley, trains, planes and boats. Did I forget cowboys? How could I!
This is sized at approximately 40" x 48" to fit a standard sized baby cot. I enjoyed working on this, its slightly smaller size made it easier to handle, a treat after all those large quilts of recent days!
I went out specially to get some boyish blue flanelette to back the quilt and it has pure cotton batting inside so it is nice and natural for baby. As you can see, I've bound it with my favourite red polka dot cotton, the red in the Cath Kidston fabrics cried out for this, I thought.
I hope the expectant mum will be thrilled with this, what a lovely gift from my thoughtful customer and I hope baby, when he arrives, will love this blanky for years to come.
I loved making this such that I am going to make a baby girl's version too, yes all in pinks and flowers, of course! I will offer both for sale on a commission basis via my blogshop. I love to think of new born babies snuggling up under quilts made by my fair hands, an honour indeed.
