All in a days work

Colored Planet Baby quilt
Just a little something for a new baby. Not mine, another new little one who will be coming along soon ~ a long-time coworker and all around sweet lady is finally expecting her first child at the end of the month. She and her hubby will make great parents, I just know it!

This little baby quilt will do nicely for the upcoming shower which is next week.

It's sort of a Munki in the middle-inspired quilt, but I expanded past Heather Ross designs to just about anything cute and childlike.

I finally dug into those Kaufman Kona roll-ups which I have been otherwise admiring on the shelf for a few months. They came in handy for this project. Don't ask me which color is which because I certainly can't tell you. I can tell you they are all from the bright palette. The sashing is Kona Ash which is a nice light grey and lovely in this quilt. For the backing/binding I choose a Riley Blake dotty print which had been in my stash and happened to match perfectly. Did I mention I love using up stuff in my stash?

One baby gift down, I still have one more to make - this month! And it's October, which means Halloween sewing is on the agenda plus Swap goodies. I better get crackin'!
