See? Unfortunately the skies and water both looked grey this morning though.
Now for Quilting... I bartered with a very generous quilter in our little group of friends who get together every few months for a weekend long SewFest. She had almost ten yards of Benartex The Quiltmaker's Gift fabric. I kept looking at the fabric and trying to figure out a pattern or find a one that wouldn't require me to cut it all up into small pieces. I finally found the pattern that will allow me to keep the focal fabric intact, AmandaJean's Figgy Pudding. I may alter the pattern to make it full bed size quilt for Em and give it to her when she gets a little older along with the Quiltmaker's Gift Book (which I bought right after she was born *grin*).
