A baby quilt I want to make . . . . .

almost . . .  I would really like to make one for my own grandbaby but since that isn't happening yet, this is the next best thing.

Fabrics that I am enjoying! 

Unlike the last two baby quilts I made.

The baby is 4 months old already but it's too hot to enjoy a quilt right now so no hurry.

I'm making this sweet number.

It's from Australia's Naive & Country Quilts magazine - Vol. 2 No. 1.  Couldn't find a date but I know I have held on to it for quite a while, like years.  I knew there was a reason for saving it!  As you can see, the half-square triangles are finished and the rest is cut out.  The applique's are cut out also but forgot to put them in the picture.

I'll work on this a little at a time over the next few months.  Maybe then it will be cool enough to use it!!

Blessings, Cathi

ps. Magazine update.  Today was Sports Illustrated and Golf.  No Primitive Quilts.
