Throwback Thursday - My First Baby Quilt

When I was expecting my first baby, I decided I had to make a baby quilt.  I purchased a panel and did a bit of machine quilting on it (on the straight lines) and hand quilting around the figures and alphabet.  Instead of binding, I edged it with a ruffle:

My mother also made me a baby quilt using the same pattern she had used for her first baby.  It had embroidered and appliqued blocks which she hand quilted:

Here is a detail shot of one of the blocks.  I love that she embroidered the flowers on the rabbit's head with the same colours as in the fabric of it's jacket:

When I was looking for these quilts, I also found a hexagonal blanket I had crocheted:

Here is a close up of a couple hexagons so you can see that the middle of the blocks is a brown bear with a bow around his neck:

My "babies" are now 27 and 25!
