I was waiting for the sun to come out so I could get a photo with the pinks more or less true They're fairly true although you can't see that the background of the main part is a pretty print. The stars are viewable. Not your usual cute baby quilt. But I'm not a "cute" kind of great-grandmother and I really wanted to make complicated stars. So this will go to Stella tomorrow for her first Christmas. That backing is a Liberty of London fabric, very light pink printed with the alphabet. I actually bought that fabric at a thrift shop even before Cori and Jay were married, let along before I had any thought of soon (or so it now seems) having a great-granddaughter.
She'll have a first birthday almost immediately and will get a more appropriate bunny-doll. I usually don't wash new quilts but I wanted this to have an antique look and I wanted to get rid of visible marking pencil lines used for the machine quilting. Done in time for Christmas. Now on to other projects.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
