October quilt

I didn't make a Schnibble pattern this month even though we had two choices.  One was for a full sized quilt, which I don't need, and the other was for a star which has never been on my list of favorites.  And besides --- 

Middle daughter is expecting her baby soon and I need to get the baby quilt finished (and some other birthday and Christmas gifts) before I work on something for myself.

I call this quilt "Godot" (with thanks to Samuel Beckett) because they're waiting.  It's a pattern I've wanted to make for several years.  I put white in the same place on the stars in each block but other than that, it's random.  The bright blue with the white elephants is what she chose for the curtains.   

Also, I want to say a public thank you to my no-blog friend Synthia.  When I told her my daughter had an elephant theme for the nursery, she saw the same blue print in a shop and sent me a fat quarter of it.  I think of her every time I look at the quilt.

I'll be shopping for the backing tomorrow.  Daughter has requested flannel and Fabric Depot has a great section of children's flannel.


  1. Lovely baby quilt, nice fabric line and what a generous follower!! Makes it just that bit more special!!!!

  2. Very sweet quilt, and I think extra nice because it is so custom to the nursery. Love a flannel backed quilt.

  3. Some day I hope to go to Fabric Depot in person... although I do shop there on line! Those elephants are so cute. It's a very sweet baby quilt Mary:)

  4. How exciting to have a new baby in the family soon! The quilt is gorgeous!! You certainly have a sweet friend in Synthia :-)

  5. What a great quilt for the newborn! Have fun with the new baby! XX Dixie
