I want to share this little quilt with you; it holds so many wonderful memories.
I was so lucky to take a huge part in daughter’s pregnancy. I got to go to ultrasounds seeing his little face (he looked just like his mom), shopping for everything any anything the little guy would need (like truckloads of stuff), and for the birth (which was my worst and best experience ever). He was born in the middle of May, and it was such a lovely spring; we went for walks around our favourite little lake every day while we were waiting.
A big part of being a grandma-to-be is making stuff for the little one, so I knitted and quilted through the whole pregnancy. Daughter had the most wonderful midwife who did all the checkups, so I wanted to give her a little something as a thank you for being so caring and wonderful to my daughter.
I took a picture of the proud mom-to-be 35 weeks into the pregnancy, and used it as a “pattern” for this quilt. Daughter sure does love her pinks, but as she was expecting a baby boy, we decided on blue.
I just love this quilt! I believe I started on a second (and pink) one for daughter; hmmm there is probably another UFO somewhere around here…
If anyone is interested of making a little waiting-quilt for a mom-to-be, I could make an illustration and quick description for the quilt; just let me know.
