I have been thinking about making this quilt for AGES! It is for a one of my husband's workmates who is due quite soon. We don't know if she is having a girl or a boy- so this one is what she gets if she has a little boy! I wanted to make her something really special as this baby is a real miracle (all babies are, I know, but she went through a lot to get this one). I'll have to get busy on a girl alternative soon.
This is my first real improv quilt (and my first wonky quilt too!), and I really liked just making things up as I went along. It gives a real sense of freedom and gets away from the production line -esque process that you get when making coin quilts and the like.
