WIP – Baby Quilt I

I said I’d started to make a baby quilt for the baby in my last post and here’s how far I’ve gotten. I did go out and buy some FQ for this project as well as backing fabric and surprisingly I fancied some yellow for the back. Must be a first, since I’ve never really been that keen on yellow. It’s good that one can change its mind though. Now let’s hope I get a chance to finish this before the little one arrives!

Baby Nest – what we kind of missed last time around

Quite a few weeks ago now I made this baby nest, using this tutorial (it's in Swedish), but modifying the method slightly. I was thinking of making one even before we had Freja but never got around to it. This time I hope it’ll come in handy for daytime use. That is if I can keep Freja from using it as a boat! Not that I blame her, it looks a lot like a little boat!

Otherwise we’re slowly getting on with everyday stuff. Lots of appointments for both F and me and little energy for creative things. Sorting a broken washing machine is top of the to-do list. Those sort of things. But I have started a quilt for the little one, just like I made Freja one 3 years ago. Just got some side panels left on the front and then it’s time to assemble and quilt. Fingers crossed it will be done before labour starts!
