A good friend of mine is going to have a baby very soon – and what better to give to welcome the little girl into the world than a quilt.
It all started with a Moda charmpack and a good old rifle through my stash.
As my friend has decided against a specifically girly colour scheme I thought you can’t go wrong with yellow. So I found the white fabric with yellow circles for parts of the top and the backing.
This fabric as well as the binding has been in my stash for 15 years! In fact when I first bought it was for the first quilt I made – another baby quilt for my first baby. So making the quilt sent me down memory lane back to the times when I was a new mum. Loads of emotion, lots of memories of this biggest change in my life.
I quilted very simple – in the ditch along the lines of the smaller pieces. For once the quilting went without a hitch – I think there isn’t a single pucker to be seen anywhere. All that is left to do is to embroider the name and date of birth. As I’m waiting for the impending birth as we speak the whole quilt should be finished soon.
