Derby ... wake me up when spring arrives.
Sunday I did a quick trip into Baltimore to give my
sister her birthday presents. This quilt was one of them.
I made it with her new guest bedroom in mind.
The back of the quilt fabric is called Winter Shimmer.
It's from a flat fold purchased in Lancaster.
It's hard to see in the quilt [front] photo but the cream

The 2nd rocket ship quilt top is done. I used a
darker blue on the block top and bottom. This quilt
will be finished and mailed to Jennifer in South Carolina.
I happened to spot her FB post about a new group
forming that specifically helps new young mother's
in need. This includes emotional support as well

One is having a boy at the end of May so this will go to
her with flannel burp cloths. Of course they have links to
items you can purchase for the moms via Amazon.
