Very, very pleased to be able to make this quilt...

About three years ago, close friends of ours lost a baby very late in the pregnancy. They named him Ryan and I made them a quilt to commemorate him.

I was absolutely thrilled to hear that last month they delivered a healthy baby boy, so I was delighted to be able to make this quilt for him!

Another quilt made entirely from scraps, the border is from an old doona cover and the backing is a lovely deep purple fitted sheet from Vinnie's. I had a lot of fun experimenting with different stitches while I was doing the quilting - how good does the zig zag look??!

Haven't given it to them yet because their little man has only just come home from hospital (he was a few weeks prem). Looking forward to delivering it in person!











Update: my friend loves the quilt, and uses it when out and about in the pram. She tells me that she is constantly being stopped in the street by little old ladies who want to know who made it!
