Pull up a chair. Not that one! It's still damp from the drink that got tipped all over it. That's it, get comfy and we can get started on our chat. I'll just put the kettle on...

Baby's first quilts

My aunt has made baby's first quilts. She made a cot quilt, and then I cheekily asked if she had enough fabric left to make a smaller one for the stroller because it's so lovely. It's not that I don't like pink, because I love colours (like these reds and greens) that are less obviously girly.

The quilt is a simple pattern with appliqued hearts and blanket stitch quilting.

My mum and I love to make quilts, too. For a while it was a bit of a family obsession (with quilts being given away to anyone who would accept them, we made so many!) but recently mum has been knitting instead and I seem to fall asleep every time I get a spare minute.

The colours look wonderful together. Girlie but not too girlie. You must be a real proud Mum pushing a pram with such a beautiful quilt over your little one. xxx
