We are so excited, happy and totally smitten. The joys of a new baby in the family!
And here we are a few hours after the birth. The proud parents Liam and Rachel and Ray and I.
I made this quilt for his cot.
It will not be needed for a few months but looks nice in his room.
A closer view. It is made up of two alternating blocks
And a variation of the Snowball block. I opted to piece the base block around a square of a blue and grey print.
This is the first quilt that I made. Started in 1989 when I was pregnant with Liam and finished a little over a year later. It is a very large quilt that was on his bed until he requested a new quilt - Ocean Waves some fourteen or fifteen years later. If you look closely you will see that it is also made up of alternating Sawtooth Star and Snowball blocks.
Fabric choices were more limited and the rust was selected to coordinate with drapes that were in the room.
