Wrapped in a quilt

I’m the quilt lady. So of course my children will have personalized quilts from me. Back in March I designed this quilt for our little Iddo.

She likes turtles (at least we’re hoping she does). So it had to have turtles on it. The kite seemed like a fun idea. Flying geese is one of the three or four blocks that Brett can identify, so those seemed like a good idea. And then I like pinwheel blocks.

The Thursday before she was born I spent a good chunk of the day finishing all the quilting on her quilt and got the binding basted down. The morning before she was born I was up at 4am with contractions sitting on the couch watching “Chuck” and working on the hand appliqué of the flowers and bow and keeping my fingers crossed labor would hold off long enough to finish the quilt (it didn’t). And today, now that she’s 2 months old, I finally finished hand stitching the binding and got it washed.

I’ve never really made a quilt quite like this one before. I hope she loves it.

And don’t worry. I had a flannel blanket I made a while back I was saving for my some-day baby. It just happened to have turtles on it. So she’s had a “mommy blanket” from the start.
