A special little quilt

Last week we had a special request to help to finish a baby's quilt.

This is not your regular size baby quilt - it is 18 x 24 inches and has a light weight batting.

Its intended use is for the baby to hold it and make it his own.

From previous experience the grandmother knows that those 1 inch prairie points will be popular.  Babies just love to find the fold in the fabric and tuck their fingers in there.

Our task was to create the name and year of birth as a finishing touch to the quilt.

I was able to create and fuse them to the quilt today.  Tomorrow I plan to stitch them in place and then this quilt will be able to be sent to Australia for baby Aaron to enjoy.

What a cute mini quilt! I love the personalised name. Very boy-centric!
