Hugo's quilt

My little nephew Hugo Dominic was born on 15 May 2006, and I made him this little quilt to hang on his nursery wall. I will be meeting little Hugo for the first time tomorrow, as he lives in Brisbane far away from his Aunty Michelle.

Once I spied these redwork patterns from, I knew they would be ideal. The sashing fabrics are a variety of vintage repro 1930s fabrics in blue, cream and red. All up, the quilt took me two weeks to make.
