Baby Quilts

Good Day from a very warm  Ontario. A perfect day to stay put and do quiet things.

  I quilted this wee quilt with spirals in the body, and continuous curves in the border.  Apparently in the corners where I did the arcs to finish, one corner has more arcs....sheesh.  Better an extra (which can be removed) then not enough I say  :))

This is a quilt I made for a couple expecting their first. The papa was a favourite school teacher of my children.  The baby arrived a few days ago,  the quilt wrapped and ready is still sitting on the sideboard.  I am just not sure when it would be good to drop in on the new parents.
I don't care to phone ahead, as I don't wish to either visit or create anxiety by announcing that I am arriving.  I remember being a new mother. It was a long time ago, yet it feels like yesterday when I get to thinking about it.

This is my first attempt at a bargello style quilt. I see another one in my future.
I used what I learned from Jamie Walden's "ThreadFusion" to quilt a hearts  meander on it.  I neglected to take a 'back' picture, ha  I am not unwrapping it to do so,  the back is a turquoise blue with multi coloured hearts.
Happy Hump Day
