My daughter in South Africa messaged me yesterday saying that their friends from church are adopting their second Zulu baby, a little girl of 6 months. Part of why they love their church so much is that a few of their friends have also adopted children and they can share their experiences together. Anyway, she asked if I would make her a baby quilt to give to her friend, I don't need to be asked twice to make a baby quilt, I love to make them.
So I went through my stash and pulled out the fabric below, I cut out 6" squares, joined them, quilted though the top and wadding by machine than attached the backing which is plain white cotton. I put them right sides together, stitched around leaving a small gap to turn in the right way then top stitch around the edge.
I washed and tumbled the quilt and now it's lovely and snugly and wrapped ready to mail. Can't wait for a photo with the new baby lying on her new quilt :)
