A cute baby quilt

 A very good friend of mine had a baby girl, so I made her a quilt. It was the first baby quilt I had made and it was great how it came together so quickly.Just  a  simple square in a square using my scraps of fig tree fabrics.
 Instead of making a label I used some sew in ones that I made on the computer.
 Quilts always look so good rolled up, I sat this one in my lavender bush.
 I also made some burp cloths with the same fabrics I used in the quilt. The hexagon one has 1930's prints. I really enjoyed making these just for something a bit different.
I'm going great guns with my new winter Americana quilt, I really enjoy sewing the triangles into rows and watching them turn into stars.
Today I have some sewing for work to finish then I think I'll find some stitching to do and watch a movie.
Have a great day and I hope you find some sewing time.
