The end of 2013 heralded the arrival of a new baby boy! My husband's cousin had her little man a few weeks early, a few days before Christmas. So I pulled every single blue fabric I owned off the shelf and then edited myself. I also grabbed a couple of divine Bella & Boo prints (the pirates, indians and cowboys), and made a very simple patchwork quilt. This is pram/bassinet size, and I can't remember the dimensions! I also forgot to take photos of it before I took it around to deliver to little Archie! So I have to give cudos to his clever Mummy, Larissa, for these fabulous photos!
I backed it in these gorgeous little blue elephants. They came all the way from Japan from my Tokyo BFF.
I kept with the simple look by quilting it 1/4" either side of the seams using Aurifil 50wt #2810 which is a divine bright turquoise/aqua. And possibly my favourite part of this quilt is the binding and the few grey/white squares used. I got out the scraps of Paloma from my Isosceles Triangle quilt - because this little man is the brother of Georgia, who sleeps under the triangle quilt! Make sense? Hahah....
So this was my final finish for 2013 - and today heralds the start of the school year - for 3 out of 4 kids anyway. My littlest starts tomorrow - boohooo! Which heralds the start of new quilts and the finishing of WIP's! Hoorah!
I'm linking up wherever they will have me - You can too!
