I'm a granny

My lovely grandson was born on the 30th December.

This is a quilt that I've been planning to make since my daughter was 11. She designed this tessellating pattern at an after-school maths class. I have held on to her picture for all these years; moved countries, moved house several times, put all my belongings in storage twice and I lost it in the last move! So this is my version of her design as I remembered it.

His name is Fox so I had to use this fabric on the back.

  2. Yay, how exciting Rona! What an unusual name - Fox, but I kinda like it. What a great quilt, with a great story - sure to become if not an heirloom, something that is kept and remembered with love.

  3. Congratulations Rona! He's beautiful, and I'm sure a lot bigger by now. That quilt is great too, such a cool story behind it.
