baby quilt

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 :)

Oh! how lovely! What a beautiful job you did dear Lindsey! Your daughter will be delighted to present this beautiful quilt to her friend, who too has done a great job by adapting a new baby :).
This is sharing God's love! Isn't it! Have a great day!

I can't think of a more special gift than a lovely, beautifully made quilt from you. You share your talents and skills in so many special ways, blessing others with it.

Beautifully done. Baby quilt are so quick and rewarding to work on. I hope all goes well with the adoption.
