I have really enjoyed the last week and a half that I have been able to spend with my family in Sydney, especially meeting this new little guy, Noah!!
He is the sweetest thing and such a good baby!
His parents didn't find out whether they were having a boy or girl, so I made this quilt in gender neutral colours to match the cushion and softie I made for my sister Ellen's baby shower ...
It has 648 little squares in that little cot size quilt!!
I only got the quilt top completed before he was born, so once I knew they had a boy I picked out a more boyish backing fabric ... I love those elephants!!
I did straight line quilting approx 1/4 inch away from the vertical seams.
And here's one more of Noah at approx 4 weeks ( he's now 5 weeks old). His clever mummy made the raggy quilt he is lying on.
WARNING: DO NOT READ ON IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH!!!
This photo is for posterity :)
You know how I said that Noah is a really good boy? Well even a really good boy can't be good all the time ;)
His poor mother copped it during a nappy change. She has now learned to change him super fast!! YUCK!!
