Quilt for baby Theodore is done

Remember the vintagelooking baby quilt my BF started, that I posted a picture of in February? Well, this weekend I finished it, and this morning I sent it to my BF who lives in London for approval, before it is to be sent to baby Theodore - about two weeks old, living in Edinburgh.



I hope he and his parents will enjoy the quilt, made by one of mommy's friends, and mommy's friend's friend:o) And I hope my BF is happy with my quilting and feels comfortable giving it away. I don't know if the picture shows it, but it's hand quilted in a simple square pattern - a square within each square. I didn't want to do anything exctravagant, seeing as it is my BF's piecing that is the main issue.

About my hour glasses: I thank all of you who have given your opinion and made suggestions. I appreciate all the feedback I'm getting on this. I'm still thinking, although I sort of have a plan, but I think I will continue thinking while I trim the remaining blocks - there are still a lot to trim.

There have also been a bit of progress on my SBS this weekend: I have managed two more blocks - nearly half way!

You made a wonderful job on quilting the baby quilt. The 2 BSB blocks are a treat as well. I have noticed a lot of red/white combinations going around in the blogs, maybe a new trend?

She must be a real friend if you hand quilted something for her.

I never got to start on my SBS blocks. Perhaps this weekend. You will be surprised with my first offerings. Is there one specific block I should start with?

I loved that quilt when it was a top and it looks even nicer now that it is quilted. Great job!
