I am by no means a seasoned quilter, because I still consider myself a relatively new kid on the block! I will always be appreciative of the wonderful ladies of Rogers Sewing Center‘s Bernina Club for being super super nice and sweet about any projects I bring for show and tell in my early sewing days! Their encouragement played a big part in my quilting life. So, I asked Lorraine of London (no blog) if I could share her recently finished FIRST quilt with my blog readers so that we can all admire the quilt she made for her grandson Ellis, and more importantly to cheer her along in her quilting journey!
If you scroll back up and look closely at the blocks, you can see Lorraine incorporated a few really great ideas on personalizing the baby quilt.
1. The ultra-sound picture, 4th block from the left on bottom row (I just think that’s the neatest idea!)
2. Letter E for her grandson Ellis, 2nd block from the left on bottom row
3. A mini blue crochet blanket, 2nd block from the left on 4th row (now, how sweet is that?!)
Well done, Lorraine! I hope you make many many more quilts to bless your loved ones!
Please feel free to leave something encouraging for Lorraine in the comment section. You can also share about the first quilt you ever made — I am vastly interested.
Have a happy weekend! I will be posting about my latest featured quilts next week! Till then.
