3rd week of March

Where are the days flying to???   My first posting for March was of the fabric for a babies floor quilt.  Preston was born last week and the quilt is nearly finished only a little of the binding to stitch down.  The pattern that I used was one that Tony Sullivan from Victorian Textiles showed the SCQ Carrum Downs group on the first Wednesday of March.  The pattern is from Hoffman Fabrics featuring a Christmas range of fabrics it is called Snowglobes and can be found at www.hoffmanfabrics.com look in their Free Pattern section.
I have altered it slightly as I did not have enough I Spy fabrics to do the fancy border.  My stash of I spy fabrics is now a little bag of small scraps looks like more shopping for fabrics at the Bathurst retreat.

The front showing the snowglobes,














The back of the quilt using the leftover I Spy pieces some of which had to be joined to get the 8 1/2" squares.

What a top idea for both the front and the backing. Preston will love it.

Thank you both for your comments!!!
I loved the pattern idea and felt it would display the I Spy fabrics well and the Hungry Caterpillar green sets them off, the borders fabric is of dolphins and seaweed.
