Quilty Love



My neighbours recently had a baby girl. 
I was delighted that the baby was a girl because I just happened to have a (prize winning) baby girl quilt all ready for her! 



Both Mom and baby had a very difficult time with the delivery, and Mom is still recovering. So of course I offered my free babysitting services and have had the pleasure of many hours of cuddling this sweetness.
How could you resist?
She is the most beautiful, tiniest, perfect little human!


She is over 6 pounds now and swims in her newborn sleeper. The baby quilt seems enormous, but she will grow into it! 
I love how she sleeps with her arms up!
This photo shows the starry flannel backing and the striped binding on her quilt.
Deep sigh... I love babies (especially this one) and love making baby quilts!!

Oh so cute! Em used to sleep like that as a baby=)
I've seen so many babies lately - I think I need to borrow a friends baby for a few hours to get my fix. I was playing peek a boo with a 4 month old at the store on Sunday. So fun!
