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!
