A Quilt waiting to happen

I think the my ‘domestic instinct’ was super strong when I was pregnant with my son in 2006. After my ‘pre-natal’ holiday with my hubby in Dec, I signed up for a quilting class with Bridgette Lee from Quilts & Sew Forth.

It was all very exciting and fun! By the time the class started proper, I was already into my 3rd trimester. BUT I should have made it to my last lesson just about 2 weeks before my Estimated Due Date. My son, Benjamin, arrived 6 weeks before due date and of course, I was stuck with 4 completed blocks, and 3 more lessons to go! :p

Bridgette has been very understanding and after a year, I’m back in her workshop picking up where I left off. And already, I have a list of quilting projects that I’d like to complete in ’08.

Here are the 6 completed blocks for the quilt top. Will be adding my sashing, border and binding soon. Think I will be machine quilting it.

I know I will take another year or so to complete this quilt if I’m going to quilt by hand :p

Think I will be done with this before end of April’08? I sure hope so! :>
