I grew up in Nova Scotia, 20 minutes away from iconic Peggy's Cove.
Now I live in beautiful Newfoundland with my husband and our 3 boys.

I spend as much time quilting as I can and dream up plans for quilting I'll never be able to accomplish in this lifetime!
My newest work in progress is a baby quilt for a friend whose little girl was born a little over a week ago. I had planned to make another one similar to the one I made for little Maddie, but plans changed when I saw this cover quilt. That Disappearing 4-Patch block was calling my name!
I knew I didn't want to make a big quilt, so a simple 3 x 3 arrangement seemed doable for a baby quilt. And, since this quilt is actually on my Finish-a-Long list for this quarter, it's not really adding something new (or at least that's what I'm telling myself).
So, with the center finished, I dug through my stash for a border fabric. At first I thought I'd use this grey...
but it's too dark. There's too much contrast for my liking. Then I thought this pink would work. It's a little darker than the main pink I used, but not dark enough. There's not enough contrast this time. The whole quilt looks a little too sugary sweet, even for a new baby girl's quilt.
So, off to the fabric store I went.
I can't wait to get this one quilted so I can share the finish!
Be sure to come back on Thursday for the
