Butterflies ... for baby Charlotte ...

:with fabric personally chosen by her mummy ...
... finally I gave over this cute cot sized quilt today!
She's only 7 weeks old already!
... with cute little hand made stitches that literally fly across the patchwork ...... see the wonky triangles in pairs of wings ....
ahhh, see now you get it!?
they are little butterflies with feelers & all ...

Not quite sure where I came up with this idea from
or what you'd call this kind of block
... but it works v nicely
... does it ring any bells anyone?

and I made a gorgeously soft bamboo wrap
with matching binding ...
which she apparently fell asleep in today!
(hey would you like a sneaky look at something
i've made for the market? well
....there are lots more of these swaddle wraps
... really huge so you can wrap lots around baby!)

Butterfly fabric is: Wings of Peace by Michael Miller
Funky Circular design is: Quite Contrary by Riley Blake
Some of: Sandi Henerson's Ginger Blossom range
Cute little stripe is: Kumari Garden, Tanya in Pink

See it while in production ...... don't you spread out your creations
on the dining room table?
Isn't that the heart of home!

Here she is ...
Welcome to the World
Charlotte Louise

i love little hands!
