I mentioned last week I had assigned myself a creative project: patchwork quilt baby blanket for my friend's baby due in January. She has reluctantly agreed to take part in a joint baby shower at the beginning of December so that's my deadline.
She doesn't want to know the sex of the baby so I've gone for a mixture of blues, purples and reds which I think has a universal appeal. I particularly love the hexagon material I found on sale at John Lewis.
I'm pleased with the progress, and quite surprised how addictive it is, stitching hexagons together! I'm doing it the lazy way, using a cardboard template to cut out the pieces, and sewing them together without papers. Eventually, I'll need to iron it as flat as possible and work out how to do the quilting bit. Cross that bridge...
