After all that knitterly happiness, I am ready for a change back to fabric again for a new baby quilt. This one isn’t a commission, so I’ve got free rein- my only constraint being time, as this baby is due rather soon! So a return to the bird quilt I made ages ago, only an updated swallow version in really zingy, bright colours. I was partly inspired by the navy and white/neon bird mobile I made too.
The sex of this baby is a surprise, so I didn’t want to veer too heavily into florals or any dinosaur fabric (no, I would never buy dinosaur fabric). A little embroidery will feature, but the overall effect will just be simple, cheerful and not too baby… sounds daft, but I want it to have an aesthetic longevity beyond the nursery years. I’ll keep you posted!
