Today Emily and I are in Eastleigh (between Winchester and Southampton) visiting Jon's daughter, Michelle, and her family. As you may remember, Michelle is expecting her second child in November and now has less than 5 weeks to go :).  Part of the reason for our trip, other than to see them, is to take down some baby clothes from Claire, which Alice has outgrown. With them both born in November (all going well) the ages and seasons will tie in perfectly.

However, what Michelle didn't know is that I've been sewing every chance I get for the last week or so to get this little quilt finished for Lily.  I've found over time that there are no guarantees when looking for fabric for baby quilts. On some occassions I have battled to find anything I like but, fortunately, that wasn't the case this time.  I look for my border fabric first and then choose the other fabrics from the colours used in the border. This quilt has turned out to be lovely and bright and I really hope both Michelle and Lily will like it.

 The back of the quilt is made of polka dot fabric which is so cute!

All boxed up and ready to take :)
