homespun design competition update

i mentioned a while ago i was thinking of having a go at entering the homespun design competition.
well, things have been moving along, by that i mean that i have sketched about 10 designs and discarded most of them :)
but i think i have settled on an idea....

looks great doesn't it - yeah right!

i think i will just start having a go making some of the surrounding blocks, and then work on the centre piece later.....the idea at the moment is to embroider a poem on there about boys..... because....

this is the fabric im going to use - some fat quarters i got from the craft fair last year

these are some of the main patterns

and then these are the plainer fabrics, after the little human rearranged them for me :)

love that chubby little wrist :)

and did someone say they were ready for their close up???

argh!  man, that is one harsh flash :)

will let you know when some actual stitching starts on it!!!!

pugs and kisses

Thanks! It'd be so perfect for a newborn quilt! Alas I already have baby quilts planned for my next babies. The nursery is Beatrix Potter so I'll do matching quilts - hopefully with a vintagey look. I have the feature fabric and everything! Now I just have to get the babies somehow! ;-)

at least you have organised what you can control! and so organised! the moment you conceive you can stitch!
