Safe to come out....

I was relieved to read over at Two Sock Knitters that knitters and quilters are NOT two rival gangs! It gave me the courage to post a picture of the quilt I'm making for WonderBaby (who, it turns out, is only one baby and is a boy!). Here it is, staked out in the basting frame, and I think I like it. I usually design my own quilts from scratch, but my daughter saw one just like this at Archangel Fabrics (sadly, now closed) and fell in love with it. I did the right thing and bought the pattern -- Kwik Scrappy Stars by Two Kwick Quilters; then combed the quilt shops in two states (North Carolina and Indiana) to find enough 1930's reproduction children's prints in blue and yellow.
Here's a closeup of a block, so you can see the fabrics. Just ignore the basting.

Back to knitting tomorrow, I promise!

Beautiful quilt! I hadn't realized that Archangel had closed. That is sad. I would have no idea where to go and get fabric now. I'm from Indiana, I can wait until I go home to visit.
