Made over a long period of time, usually at my Monday night sewing gathering. I didn’t have a particular person in mind for this quilt. Well, no, I did – but that person’s child will be one in March. Then there was another friend – her baby is about six months old now. But when Mel told me she was having a boy, I knew that the reason I didn’t finish the quilt in time for the others was because it was meant for Tom.
The quilt fabric was a bundle of fat quarters, bought in Canberra a long time ago. It was (as always) machine pieced and hand quilted. I love this quilt. So does Mel. I asked her to make sure she uses it – it’s fully washable so I expect all manner of bodily fluids (hopefully all Tom’s) to touch it at one time or another.
