Aaaages ago, I started another scrappy trip along quilt with Aneela Hoey's adorable Cherry Christmas line. Several months later, and I still have only 4 completed blocks (although I have made progress on the next 32!). However, because I used fat quarters to make my blocks, I had two strips left over from each block, and I thought I'd use these leftovers to make a wee baby quilt.
This quilt is just pretty randomly pieced together, although I did try to get a somewhat even colour distribution. I'm very happy with how this quilt top turned out. So happy, in fact, that even though I made it with the intention of donating it to the neo-natal unit at Wellington Hospital, I am tempted to keep it for myself. I won't, of course, but I want to! I do think that this is a particularly good quilt to donate - it's totally gender neutral, and it's Christmassy but not so much that you couldn't leave it out all year round.
This little guy is all basted up ready for quilting. I think I'll use the same design I'm planning to use on my scrappy trip along quilt - that will give me a good chance to see how it looks with these fabrics. Now, to work on my scrappy trip along version. Here's hoping I can get it done by Christmas.
Linking up with finish it up friday at crazy mom quilts.
