The baby wasn't due until 8 January so I obviously decided that it was much better to wait until just before Christmas to think about a quilt design. I decided on something based on Retro Starburst from Material Obsession 1. And again I decided it was much more sensible to wait around the baby's due date to actually start working on the quilt.

What do you think?
Linking up with WIP Wednesday for the first time too.
