There is something so satisfying as a quilter in seeing a quilt you made being used by a baby (a new person on earth!). Like in the post Baby Quilt for An Adventure Baby, I was fortunate enough to be provided with photos of a new person in a quilt I made.
This post is a follow up to my March 30th post What’s on the Design Wall (Another Baby Quilt), where I shared a baby quilt in progress.
Well the baby quilt got completed and given to my friend Marla during her visit a couple of weeks ago and she delivered the quilt to the new parents in Portland, Oregon. Marla was kind enough to take photos for me of the new baby, Azzy, in his new quilt!
First here is the completed quilt in my studioafter I did basic straight line quilting and pre-washed it for the new parents:
And now here is little Azzy in his new quilt (thanks Marla for the photo!):
I think I just want to make baby quilts as my new career and have a wall of photos of babies snuggled in the quilts I made (smile).
At the end of April I was honored to be featured on Maker Monday on the Instagram page of @blkmakersmatter.
