Y'all are probably tired of my pixelated hearts, but honestly I'm pretty committed to gifting every new baby a quilt--okay, those in my acquaintance. This little heart quilt finishes at a generous 45 x 45. Here are the latest 2. The pink one is being shipped tomorrow. I really need to get busy boosting my cache of baby quilts.
The very first quilt I've made. This quilt holds all the love, hope I had in my heart and my mind as I was sewing while my daughter was expecting. One side, the back is a fleece fabric with a Christmas spirit. The front is made of symbols. The flags and guards for my husbands country. The center panel, the road connecting family members (and it could be used as a playmat). The 4 pictures are photos printed on fleece fabric. Photos of our family members. The persons who love the little boy to be born; his mum, his grandparents (my husband and I), his great grandparents (my parents) and his great great grandmother (my grandmother, with my daughter when she was 10 years-old). A way for me to give him a reminder of the fact he is loved and always will be.
Another in the queue of Mom’s projects this one was on a back burner until she decided she could send it to the new great granddaughter in Sweden. If you are going to spend that much to send a box it might as well be full. Mom did the embroideries long ago and then it got pushed back. I just framed them, sashed it all and then quilted with small meander around the embroidery, stitch in the ditch around the frames, and a butterfly around the outside edge - because what else would you put on a bug quilt!
