babyquilt

A few days before I moved to England my grandma gave me some old fabric back from when I was a baby.
I have always wanted to make a quilt from it , but I never did, fearing that the second I cut the fabric I will have ruined it all forever & all those lovely memories would be lost.
But yesterday, while both my little ones were asleep, I looked at that gorgeous fabric & thought
I’ll do it.

I am not at all used to guiding the fabric with my left hand while turning that wheel on the side of the Singer, so it’s not straight in any way, but, I love it, & I know someone else who does:

// my lovely mum shared this photo of Emily with me, saying that George looks a lot like her. I don’t remember my Emily ever being as tiny as she looks here!

I hope you have a lovely day today!

    Zum ersten Mal, sonst sah er immer aus wie ein kleiner Anthony.Und er ähnelt Emi-Baby.
    Schönes Foto und ein toller Quilt. Klasse gemacht, meine Große

  3. What a beautiful quilt! And such a cute baby Emily !! I’m scared of making everything! I have kept all the special t-shirts from life with DH and would like to make a quilt out of them sometime. But, since I don’t sew, I don’t see it coming anytime soon as I’m terrified of ruining it.

  4. That is an absolutely beautiful quilt. I wish I had the knowledge and patience to do something like that.
    I have fabric from my mother that she got from Japan 40 years ago. I don’t know what to do with it so I keep it folded up in a bin. Maybe one day…

    Wow, amazing quilt. I’m so impressed. Yes, my “practice chuppah quilt” sat as a pile of fabric for months, because I didn’t dare cut the fabric. I’m now halfway done with the top (and since the “easier” part was so hard, a little intimidated of the next step lol.)
    I also have some gorgeous fabric from the remnant bin that I want to make an apron with that I still haven’t done so because I don’t want to ruin the fabric. Oh an all my handspun yarn sitting around and I could go on and on ;) good job for braving it. It turned out lovely! and so fast! (I have this idea in my head that quilts are supposed to take years even though I’ve heard of people finishing them in a day lol) miss you dear

    That is absolutely gorgeous. :) I have definitely worked with fabric that I loved too much to cut up. But, I was so glad when I did because it wound up that I loved the object I made even more because I loved the fabric so much! I can definitely see that this quilt you made is, and will remain, an heirloom. :)
