A few weeks ago our dear friends welcomed their second daughter, Samina into the world. We knew in advance that they were having a girl so I started working on a baby quilt for her.
And a bunting.
There's no pattern. I just made it up as I went...using scraps for the top part - all little random panels sewn together. A vibrant pattern for the middle section and then a plan block colour for the third section. Backed with some Amy Butler dot fabric and edged in a cute floral geometric print.
I haven't been to see Samina yet...but I've seen photos and of course is adorable!
There is nothing quite as precious as a newborn in the family and it's lovely to be able to make something handmade as her first gift from us.
Do you love making things for newborns? If so, do you have something special you tend to make? I love the idea of babes using this quilt to lay on, roll around, carry around the house or snuggle up with a book.
