As first time parents I don't think you can ever really get what it is going to be like, so to prepare my SIL, I made her this quilt...
Before Christmas I was over at The Village Haberdashery and happened to spot the above bolts of Kona sitting next to each other in the 'Kona Annex'. They were screaming strip quilt at me and so a skinny quarter of each found their way into my already bulging basket.
I appliqued the words with a blanket stitch and then quilted with wonky waves using #Aurifil thread in variegated greys (#4670 50wt).
Another easy quilt finished and ready for the Princess to lay her head on.
Design: Err it's a strip quilt, not rocket science really ;-)
Fabrics: Kona solids in Peapod, Kiwi, Fern, Emerald, Aqua, Windsor and Wisteria.
Letters and Binding: Architextures crosshatch in grey
Quilting: Wonky wavy lines using #Aurifil variegated thread in grey (#4670)
Backing: Ikea Britten Nummer (what else!)
Size: 40" x 50" approx
