I finally found time to share my biggest project ever! Baby Margot was born October 17th, weighing in at 7lbs, 4oz and was 19.5 inches long. She took less time to create than some of my quilts but she was definitely the most labor intensive project I’ve done. haha! With all of the baby projects, I didn’t have time to finish her quilt until after she was born. I had all of the blocks ready so it just took me a few long naptimes to put it together.
I designed this one myself (if you can call a bunch of shapes “designed”) and really like how it turned out. In hindsight, I think I should have gone totally solid and used less of the coral (it reads too orange for me in this). Nevertheless, I love it and Margot loves her daily tummy time on it.
Now that Margot is a little easier to take care of, I hope to be back to blogging more often. I have a few projects up my sleeve that I’m excited to get going on! I hope you enjoy the photos of Margot & her quilt.

Oh Wow! Big congratulations to you both!!!! Margot is gorgeous – yes, labour intensive, not only in the making….but worth every bit of it.
Love your quilt, it’s a beautiful mix of blocks with your colour choices pulling it together beautifully. Amazing photos as usual too. Lovely to see and hear all is well.
Margot is beautiful! Do you think she will have brown eyes? The quilt is lovely, too. Apparently high contrast is good for babies, so she is probably loving the dark and the light of it. I’m happy to see you back blogging.
Both of your long term projects are beautiful !!! Many congratulations to you and I hope you are doing well? Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely photographs soon 🙂
They are both gorgeous!! I love seeing pictures of Margot on instagram. She is such a cutie, and her smile is contagious. The quilt looks amazing. The coral doesn’t seem overwhelming to new, and the prints add nice texture. Great job:) and good to have you back.

Margot and the quilt are a stunning pair. 🙂 I really like the colors in the quilt, personally, and the fun secondary shapes that the block parings make are great fun for the eye to pick out.
She’s gorgeous- as is her quilt! And her name…
Just love the baby, she is so cute, Congrats.
The quilt is so fun, love the colors, love the building it hangs
on and the snow.
And hope you will make a pattern out of it for the rest of us.
I miss my snow.
congratulations on your adorable baby girl! And the quilt is beautiful too!
Awwwh, she is so so cute. Congratulations. I like your quilt and I don’t think it is too orange.
Congrats! She is sweet and so is the quilt. Lovely colors and great pics too!
Oooh, soooo cute! She’s precious! Congratulations!
And I love the quilt too. I’m so excited you’re back! 🙂
Look at that smile! Congratulations! Love the snowy backdrop against the quilt – gorgeous!

She is adorable! That quilt is also a great work of art. Congrats on the birth of both of them :).
She is unbelievably cute and photogenic, and I think the balance of colours is perfect. Orange is a wonderfully cheerful colour.
Great name too. Margot is a classic.
Love all those shapes and your color palette! Of course you designed it – complexity is not required to qualify as design. Excellent job! Especially as you had to finish it after baby came. I imagine she loves looking at it and will grow to love it even more as she comes to appreciate it over time. Wonderful photos! Well done all around, little mama. 🙂
