I use the most simple pattern I can get away with, I try to use fabric I have collected and I don't want to spend much time behind the sewing machine.
In the 8th month of my last pregnancy, I was as focused as only a nesting mother can be, on making a baby quilt.
Unlike my past lazy quilts with wonky stitching, this quilt turned out perfectly. The corners matched up! The fabric was all chosen for a specific reason and I love how bright and cheery it turned out. As I say when I'm gardening, I'm more surprised when something turns out well, than when it doesn't; and I'm an optimist!
