Wednesday Afternoon

A friend recently asked me to make a cot quilt for him, for a friend of his who is expecting a baby girl this month. Here is what I have put together so far. Although it is already big enough, I think I will put a final narrow border all the way around to unite it all.

I had originally sketched up a design using the fabrics above for a cot quilt, but unfortunately the key fabric - a yellow on yellow - was out of stock so all my plans were ruined. As I need to finish a cot quilt for my friend within the next week or two, I had to come up with an alternative. But I will try to get a nice yellow to make up my design in the future.

I received this lovely boy's quilt in the mail today - I am so thrilled with it. A patchwork friend was having a clean out and selling off some samples, and I was lucky enough to buy this one for virtually nothing! Her work is so amazing!
