A quilt for my nephew.

My brother and his wife recently welcomed their beautiful boy, Jackson ,to their family.
So what does a doting Aunty do when a new baby arrives? Makes a quilt of course!
This is my version of Simple Modern Baby Quilt, from Elizabeth at Oh, Fransson. I quilted in the ditch rather than stipple all over . I like a baby quilt to be snuggly and I find that an all over stipple can make a quilt rather stiff. I was quite pleased with the final result.
I am off to meet a dear friend and her girls for a playdate at an indoor play centre..must remember my ear plugs.....the squeals of delight can be quite deafening !
