Amy is expecting her second baby in May. She is decorating the nursery in peach, white and cream colours and has asked me to make her a matching cot quilt. We have found some Moda fabrics called Storyline, these designs are so sweet, castles, balloons, stars and tiny birds, all in peach, pale yellow and turquoise colours. We have decided to use the taupe, peach and yellow colours ways and add some extra plain fabrics too.

I decided to divide some of the squares into four to add interest with the smaller squares. Here is the finished quilt:

This quilt measures 106 x 118cm ( 41.5 x 46.5 inches)
I took the quilt up to our nursery here for the extra photos..... we are expecting another baby in our own family soon too and I am so excited! Being a granny is the best job! Our antique wicker cot has been waiting so long for another baby to fill it.... No pressure though daughters....!

The Aconites are out in the garden, the birds are getting really interested in the nest boxes, new babies there too soon, it feels as though spring is just around the corner.
Husband has felt the need to turn the compose heap, a sure sign that Things Are Starting in the gardening calendar. This is my signal that large amounts of Gardener's Cake is required too!
Lots of you still have snow so armchairs and seed catalogues call, but I hope you have lots of time for quilting this week,
