Baby quilt

Suffering with left-brain fatigue from all those cityscapes, I have flung myself into making a baby quilt for my cousin's new grandchild.

It was a joy to work with bright colours, bold prints and wonky circles. I used a technique by Beryl Taylor, which is no doubt completely unsuitable for a baby quilt, as it features lots of raw edges. Perhaps as a wallhanging in the nursery? It has been several years since I have ventured to use a traditional binding, and I cringe to think just how much I have forgotten about making one. Another learning experience.

I have a shocking amount of these brightly-coloured cottons stashed away. No doubt there will be more baby quilts to make in the coming years.
