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.
