How I managed to forget to post anything about this recent finish and delivery, I will never know. In the general hubbub of recent days, I guess I just overlooked it. I will rectify this oversight now.
About a week and a half ago, I was finally able to get the baby quilt Molly had requested into her hands. Molly, a high school classmate of my DS, is a second-time mom, and while she was pregnant with #2 she contacted me about a baby quilt. I'd made one for her firstborn, and so now I'd be making one for her second.
Baby Ella was born in July, and about 6 weeks later, she finally took ownership of her quilt.
I've bemoaned here on the blog before about what a great procrastinator I am. This is just further proof. This was the easiest quilt ever, and yet I manage to make a major job of it. Well, let's get to the good stuff - the pictures!
After Molly knew her baby would be a little girl, she informed me that her nursery's color scheme would be peach and gray. Even thought the color in these pictures is a bit off, the orange is closer to peach than what you see. I shopped for fabric on our outing during the Canter's Cave Retreat. It was fun looking for these colors. The picture below shows more accurately the peach color.
If I can get Molly to take a picture of her sweet baby girl with her quilt, I will be sure to share it here.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
