Latest Baby Quilt

I love making baby quilts as they come together so quickly and easily.  I used some flannel for the randomly pieced strips and minkie for the binding.

I found the pink leaf fabric on the back from a garage sale last year.  She was the Pottery Barn sheeting buyer and had all of these sheeting samples.

It was a gift for my neighbour who just had a baby girl, Natalie, last week.  Confession: I wish she hadn’t opened it in front of me because her first response was: ‘This looks homemade’

*cringe*

Then, ‘Did you make it?  How wonderful.  Can I wash it?’

*sigh*

I know you can’t control the level of appreciation for your handmade gifts, but I do wish I had made my exit before she had opened it so I could make up my own version of her reaction!

Ah well.  It was fun to make, and I think I’ll do another random stacked coins for another baby quilt for another friend of mine due next month.

    Susanne I completely understand how you feel. That quilt is awesome…you put a great deal of time and thought into it. Individuals that are not crafters/sewers themselves, have no idea how much of ‘you’ is in it. Don’t be discouraged…there will be others that are much more appreciative in the future :)
