Orange squares for a little one

The wind is howling outside (“la bise noire”, it is called, which sounds rather like a rather dark and dangerous kiss…). The radiators are full on. Switzerland is slowly turning into a cold, dark place. Time for quilts!

I finished this little baby square one a few evenings ago, and haven’t quite got round to gifting it to my friend. The idea of getting on a bike in this freezing weather to cycle across town isn’t the most appealing at the moment. It is for a little tiny Miss E, my friend Ms J’s fourth baby, including one little angel. Hopefully this will help the littlest one feel a bit special.PICT9992I just posted up lots of my quilts in a special page on this blog. I realise how many square quilts I have made. Hmmm…. Time to break out? Well, the latest two that are not yet quilted are certainly not squares, so there is hope for me yet!

PICT9993A mix of new fabrics, and a ‘vintage’ (read: second-hand) sheet on the back. I picked up the binding in Italy, but it seems to wash rather scrappily. I should have made it myself, although I love the orange gingham.

PICT9995I will link this up to Finish-it-up-Friday when America wakes up. It’s always fun to see what other people get up to.

Wrap up tight in a quilt this weekend, if the wind is howling for you! JJ

    Love your quilt! Love the colours and I really don’t think there’s such thing as too many square quilts šŸ˜‰

    I like the gingham too. I did a quilt top recently with this pattern going on and I really like yours!
