Quilt for a Baby Girl
There are lots of things to look at in this quilt. Many have meaning for our family. There are some sewing fabrics as well as bicycles representing some of our hobbies and past-times.
Spot the dog and Dr Seuss books were favourites at our house when our daughter was little.
(Sorry this picture is upside-down!) The baby's family lives near the ocean so there are some lighthouses in one of the fabrics.
Some favourite foods are included as well.
A family member was a beekeeper and my husband is a model railroader...
The backing and binding are nice and bright! One of the white fabrics has French words on it--my daughter is bilingual.
My husband and I and baby C holding the quilt up for her daddy to take a picture. Baby C has a good hold on the quilt too! I did not get a close up of the upper right corner but there is some fabric with red maple leaves in that part--C's parents are Canadian but they live in the US.
I hope C and her family enjoy playing on and with this quilt for years to come!
I spent the afternoon yesterday with some friends sewing in my dining room. I worked on some charity quilts for the London Friendship Quilters' guild as well as the borders on my Lazy Sunday mystery. Pictures to follow in a future post.
