Building blocks finish and a surprise...

Blocks 5-8 of Dear Jane.

Building blocks quilt along is complete. I am so very happy with this and I am 12.5 months ahead of schedule as the 18th birthday isn't until April next year.

The back... almost a double sided quilt and you can see the quilting better.

This young man made his appearance on Monday at 11.53 am after a fairly quick labour. Dad looks so proud here and I just love the photo SIL doing all the correct things. DD1 was exhausted and looks it so will save a family photo for after Easter when I hope to get a 4 generational snapshot.

Here he is , all 8 lb 15 oz of him.(and 5 days early)

Cos my computer was throwing a wobbly, here are blocks 1-4 of Dear Jane.
