Expecting ........

No, not me - that would be a miracle!!!! But I do know several expectant mums at the moment, so couldn’t resist making this lovely cushion for the nursery! It has a double-sided pattern. One side to slumber to with Mr Moon:

And the other side to wake up to with Mr Sunshine:

It comes from this lovely new book called ‘Quilt a Gift’ by Barri Sue Gaudet, which I bought recently when I went to buy fabric .... NOT another book – resistance was futile though, so I didn’t bother trying!!! The cushion went together quite easily using scraps of fabric from my stash and felt for the appliqué.

I’m not saying which expectant mum the cushion is for though yet just in case she happens to be sneaking a peek!!!
