How happy I was to discover that I had enough fabric scraps from Abby’s quilt to make this sweet baby quilt! I used the same wonky log cabin design that I used for Nell’s book of colours. This technique is so addicting, that I may use it for a quilt for Sophie. The original quilt I made for her many years ago is in rough shape (it was my first attempt at quilting) and she could really do with a new one.

The quilt is going to a couple who is expecting their first baby (a girl!). They have had an exciting year so far-a wedding, a pregnancy, a new job and a move to a different city. Congratulations Bobby and Ronnie!

There is nothing like a fresh stack of fabric to get the sewing juices flowing! A couple of weekends ago I had a brief, but lovely visit with a good friend of mine. We visited our favourite fabric shop in Guelph, called the Greenwood Quiltery. They carry a beautiful selection of fabric and yarn. While there, I bought some fat quarters of the Far Far Away Heather Ross fabric line that I have been eyeing for years. The quilt design is the Yellow Brick Road pattern. It is a quick and easy pattern that I have sewn a couple of times before. I did not buy enough fabric, so I had to dig into my fabric stash, and also make a mid sewing emergency trip to our local quilting store for more! When the quilt is done it will be for our sweet 6 year old Abby.
