a quilt for a boy
Me and hubby were asked to be godparents to my best friends I's and B's third child, a boy. I am happy and honored to be a godmother! I wanted to make him a quilt.
I never finnished the floor quilt I intended for wee M, but I thought a lot about how to finnish it, thought all the stages of sewing through. So when I started on making the quilt for wee V I finnished it in two days, cause I had been thinking it through and kind of new how to do it. Two days is no time to brag about, when making a baby quilt, but since this was my first quilt done I am excited I made it in such a a short time.
Picture above; I am remaking the corners of the binding. I thought I knew how to do them corners but had to rip and watch this lovely lady's instructions once more.
Embroidered name and date of christening.
I did not quilt it traditionally, I simply hand sewed crosses in every joining of squares, as shown above and they kept all the layers of fabrics and batting together.
All fabrics are reused and the binding is hand made.
