Some baby sewing under way










Its time to get onto some serious sewing for my new little Granddaughter, due at end July. I found a panel in the right colours and made up this little cradle sized quilt. When we were expecting our first child my Hubby made a rocking cradle for her. It has been used for our 4 children and now a number of our grandchildren. It has had a few changes of colour in that time, so still looks really good. This quilt is to be used in that cradle.
I have fabrics left over from it to now make another quilt – with some piecing it should be a cot sized quilt.
