This past weekend I attended a baby shower for my nephew's wife. This expectant mom received so many wonderful gifts, I know she will be perfectly set up for her new arrival. I envied her the large group of friends she has, all who seem to have children of their own. She will have an amazing support group, which is so important when you are a new mother. My gift to her was two baby quilts, one large and one small. You see her holding up the larger one in the photo above.
My quilter did a terrific job selecting the perfect quilting design for this quilt. It enhances the romantic feel of the quilt wonderfully. The fabric I used for this quilt was a vintage Robin Pandolph collection. I wish I could recall the name of the pattern I used, but sadly, I cannot. The over all effect is sun-washed and faded, which I think is so pretty.
The smaller quilt also is beautifully quilted, and the swirly pattern of the quilting is very nice against the more angular block design. The block design is reminiscent of those crocheted afghans everyone's grandma used to make back in the day. The fabric is one of Pam Kitty Mornings first collections.
My year of giving quilts is off to a good start!
