One such upcoming baby is due in August to our neighbours. This will be their fifth(!) boy. Holy cow. It seems like yesterday I was making a quilt for their youngest!
The real issue, however, is that my co-workers need new hobbies. It wouldn't be such an issue if these weren't people I felt close enough to to make them a quilt (I do have lots of co-workers because of my job) but these are people I like or even love and so I have more baby quilts on the To Do list!
Expecting her first baby in July is a friend who started her career with me. I was her mentor during her first two years of teaching and we have remained friends ever since. Of course to make matters more difficult, baby did not cooperate on the ultrasound and she has no idea if she is expecting a boy or girl. Grrrrrrr. I picked the bundle pictured below to make the quilt. I totally love this combo and might want to keep the quilt for myself when it is finished! Now I just need a pattern. Suggestions?
|Some Allison Glass feathers in Teal, some Lizzy House cats (they are crazy cat people), some Tula Pink...I just love these colours and patterns together!|
|Navy and grey. Awesome colours. It was hard to cut into my Arizona!|
So, as I said. my co-workers need new hobbies. Bowling? Crochet? Pottery? Something that doesn't result in so many babies!!! :)
