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’


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


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.

    It is my belief that mesothelioma will be the most lethal cancer. It contains unusual traits. The more I really look at it the greater I am persuaded it does not act like a true solid tissue cancer. When mesothelioma is a rogue viral infection, so there is the chance of developing a vaccine and also offering vaccination for asbestos open people who are vulnerable to high risk of developing foreseeable future asbestos linked malignancies. Thanks for discussing your ideas for this important ailment.

    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 :)
