babychops ii blanket


pale grey cotton flannel and purple rosebud print both from linnet
cotton batting from quiltdirect

Well, it’s a quilt isn’t it. But it’s not a patchwork quilt. Wasn’t ready for that. The next one however I am ready for. And it will be patchwork. And it will be linen. And I will not use bloody polycotton bias tape. Which I really do not like. But I’m too lazy to be patient enough to follow the instructions on making my own. And I’ve been waiting for Superbuzzy to get the organic stuff back in stock for five weeks now. And truth be known I really can’t afford anything else right now. So I’m just going to have to wash the living daylights out of it and then I’ll send it to Sydney for a bit to have the sun beat the buggery out of it. And if that all fails I can cut it off and re-bind it.

Yep, there’s always that. But the rest of it’s marvellous. So who cares about the binding. At least it’s a good colour.

    It’s so lovely Charlotte. I want to wish you and your family the best as you look forward to your upcoming birth. I hope you have a wonderful birth experience. I too was sick with a cold and was coughing nonstop as I was rushed to delivery so the lack of sleep was just awful. Glad to hear you are on the mend!
