Back in Finland!

Back in Finland, safe and sound. No foreign travel plans now until June 25th! Unfortunately, I was a terrible tourist in the UK (Aberdeen for a conference, London and environs for fun) and didn't take any pictures! Did have a great time, though!

I do have one exciting photo to post today, however. I am actually getting somewhere on a quilty project! I didn't get this finished in time to meet the little one last week, but I think I will actually finish by his first birthday next week! I posted about my inspiration for this quilt a while back - further inspiration from a certain flag for the dark/light layout.

I just love this--the little bits of bright color winking out from the lighter, calmer background just makes your eyes want to look everywhere at once.

welcome back... Everytime I see a hedgehog, I think of you... I even have one in my current I-spy quilt...

Welcome back home! What an interesting quilt, Jen. The pieced bands add little bright surprises in the top sorta like the I-spy Amy mentioned.

What a gorgeous quilt. I love the subtle flag pattern in the lights/darks.

That is such a nice quilt - so subtle makes it so special - the veiled reference to the flag is very clever

Oh Hedgehog, I love it!

Welcome back!

I love it - the colours are nice. Good to see a bit of bright pink and red etc in a baby quilt.
