Baby Blues [a finish]

I know I keep saying it, but everyone is having babies - I guess with the situation at work (impending redundancy) everyone is getting maternity before they go! Well, this is another quilt for another manager.

I can take absolutely no credit for any part of this quilt except for the piecing and quilting: the block, the layout, the quilting design... it's all Sharon's! Her finished quilts were just so gorgeous I didn't change anything - thank you Sharon for a great tutorial and inspiration (as always)!

The fabrics are all from my stash: Pearl Bracelets; Kona solids; Art Gallery Indian Summer, Oval Elements, Pure Elements; Painters Canvas; Sketch; Snow Queen; Tula Pink..... with a white tone-on-tone swirl print.

The backing is a print from Art Gallery's Luxe in Bloom and the binding is Pure Elements in Parisian Blue.

The bamboo is my favourite bamboo cotton blend, the threads are Aurifil - something beig-y for the piecing, white for the quilting on the top and a variegated blue on the bottom. The finished quilt is 36" x 42".

And at the start of January I will be linking up with Leanne, as this was on my Finish Along list for the fourth quarter.

That is just simply lovely! I am a Blue Girl myself so all of those could just come live with me. :-) Well done!!
