One more baby quilt....



I have a bunch of nieces and nephews, many of whom are at that stage of life where babies seem to appear. Of course they need quilts. Who doesn't? The latest is for Margaret....

She is getting a Kitty-Cat quilt. I don't always use patterns, but I was having a hard time deciding what to make for her. I came across this one going through stuff on my shelf, and I thought it would do fine.

I used pastels -- also something I don't usually do. More often, I opt for bright colors. But this quilt wanted to be soft and sweet.



Margaret has an older brother. Big brothers need presents, too. I like to give books, and wanted something that went along with the cat theme. I found the perfect one this weekend at Barnes and Noble...Kitten's First Full Moon. The kitten reminded me so much of my nephew!

Cute quilt! I love the fact that you chose a book for Big Brother that goes with the theme of the quilt. I absolutely LOVE books!

Gorgeous quilt. Can I ask where you got the pattern?

Also, just came across your lovely coralicious sock pattern on ravelry. Are you based in the US? Wanted to know if it was size 10 American - in which case they will fit my Mum perfectly.

Many thanks and happy knitting.

I am enjoying making baby quilts for new little friends too! I think your cat one may be next on the list.
