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!
