Baby Quilt - Alphabet Bears &Bows

Another quilt - this time the Alphabet with Bears in pinks blues and greens - with pretty bows in all the quilt's colours on each corner. Top & Bottom are bears and quote 'Follow your Dreams' 
Backing is pale pink fleece with a bears and kites print binding in soft pinks and blues on white ...............I thought the kites fitted in that one could fly ones dreams as well - aim for the stars! 

What do peeps think - sweet and simple - perfect for a little girl??? 
I have the same pattern with red & blue bears - better for a boy - or just a brighter primary print?
Baby's  prefer bright primary colours as their eyes can distinguish them better  

Other than the above quilt not been making much - apart from a taupe with white flecks ziggy-zaggy jacket - pics to follow! 
Sadly me sewing machine is broken - the presser foot lever - did it while cleaning the machine - de-linting it .................. so mea culpa! But I now have a vintage SINGER 201 to try out - spent three days and nights playing with it to get it to sew properly ......adjusting tensions and cleaning it ........... now to see if its worth getting an electric motor fixed to it so shall try sewing properly with it - perhaps my Mt Fuji Quilt that I have been planning to do for last couple of years - LOL
( See  prior posting on the Mt Fuji Wall-hanging - it will be based on that - an abstract version - so watch this space.........)

As for the craft sale I personally did not do very well - though am very pleased others did! 
Today at last some sunshine and a bit warmer - so maybe some Spring weather at last! I suspect we may be a  bit like Canada where Spring is extremely short season as they segue from Winter straight into Summer with a week for Spring weather! Sadly here Summer is likely to be wet and cold and grey  a sort of warmer version of recent weather! 
Well we need the rain - hut prefer it to fall at night and have sunny days! 
Despite ALL the rain we have been having the garden is already dry - as we are on sand it drains very freely have to start watering soon.................despite hose-pipe ban so watering cans and hose to the water butt ....................
