(S)cream

I shall scream if I have to do another cream quilt soon

I started with two - one for a January baby,
one for a February baby. 

STOCK = 2

The January baby was Henry,
but I managed to embroider Harry on the quilt, 
so that went on the waste pile

WASTE = 1
STOCK = 1

I used the spare one for Harry
WASTE = 1
STOCK = 0
DELIVERED = 1

Then Lisa's friend, Roseena wanted a cream quilt
for her 21st, so I made a whirly gig one
 

    WASTE = 1
STOCK = 0
DELIVERED = 2

Then the February baby arrived: Luke. 
I made the prefect point quit for him, which looks fab,
but is stiff like cardboard - so onto the waste pile
 

WASTE = 2
STOCK = 0
DELIVERED = 2

Then I made another Orphan block D9P, 
and successfully managed to embroider Luke's name
onto it, and deliver it to the customer

WASTE = 2
STOCK = 0
DELIVERED = 3






Phew!

  1. Oh Benta, I understand you! Too much cream is scream! Why that one quilt became too stiff? Too bad because I love that pattern. Could you find a dog for that quilt?
    I hope your next quilt has LOTS OF COLOURS!

  3. Lol, I'd be screaming too! But really, cream for a baby quilt, doesn't that show the muck up worse than bright colours? ;o)

  4. Sounds like an injection of colour is needed. Why all the bland cream?

  5. Time to play with some color! They all turned out lovely. Maybe you can find someone and convince them to name their baby Harry and give that quilt so it won't be in the waste pile. ;)

  6. I quite like cream (just painted downstairs 'Archive' by Farrow and Ball - very cream - looks great) but for a baby quilt prefer many bright colours to hide the stains. xx

  8. "The January baby was Henry, but I managed to embroider Harry on the quilt." --I'm sorry, I cracked up at this, probably because I could see myself doing the same thing! There's a reason I haven't tried embroidering yet :). All the finished quilts look lovely, though!

  9. At least the stats are improving! I love all that cream - especially the whirligig but I'm guessing you must be craving some colour.
