Baby Quilt

I have posted a few pictures of this quilt in its various stages but it is finished now and handed over to the owner.

I have made this for one of my work colleagues who became a grandmother for the first time only a month or so earlier than me - sadly for her - her grandchild is in the UK!!!

When discussing colours - she initially suggested "ice pink"....I suggested to her - that it might be easier if she visited a patchwork shop and looked at fabrics - I gave her an idea of how much to buy etc - and notes about the pattern I would be using (I had shown her a few samples) - and I did expect the people running the shop would give her some help - they didn't!!!...but she decided on the fabrics. 
I must admit when I first saw them I was a bit "Oh...mmm....", but the more I worked on it - the more I liked it.   Maybe I will get her to pick fabrics for me ...???

I do hope she and her daughter like it.


  1. It looks good.... Very kind of you to make it for her.....

  2. Lovely quilt and so nice that you made it for her... she did well witht he fabrics - its not always easy to choose...

  3. It is such a happy quilt Susan and it looks beautiful in real life....well done! Its sure to be loved xx

  4. I am sure it will be much loved Susan, it is a beautiful quilt and beautifully made.

  5. I think she did a great job of picking the fabrics as it made up a fabulous baby quilt.

  6. It's really pretty and I am sure it will be loved! xx

  7. The fabrics look great together. Not a good thing when the shop assistant didn't help her, I thought that is what they are there for.
