Baby Quilts



Keeping my commitment for a quilt for every new child (and that includes adoptees and fosters of any age) two quick finishes in all of my 'spare' time ;) These two are made completely of leftover scraps from previous projects...great for the Eco-Earth Day weekend that lies ahead.

To welcome a new great niece newly 'hatched' last week, two little quilts and a cloth book for big sister to read to her new little sister (and a wind-up musical toy for both to enjoy.)The first baby quilt uses bright prints (showcasing spring flowers and baskets) with a backing of baby duckings (the parents are huge University of Oregon Duck fans) pulled from my string bins.

The second is Beatrix Potter four patch done in the softest of soft pre-washed flannels. Combined with a simple and practically made cloth baby book to match, (she can chew on this one!) and adding in a musical duckling and her little tag-along baby Koala bear. The little musical toy was actually picked out and purchased by my mother, the great-grandma, which makes it even extra-extra special.

A fast, simple but nice gift bag of goodies from the two of us to the two of them!
