Baby Quilt

Not strictly (or at all) card related I know, but I like to indulge in a bit of sewing now and again.

The pictures below are of a baby quilt which I've made for my sister who is pregnant with a boy who is due in a couple of months.

There are four different types of fabric. The white with the blue pattern was a pillowcase which belonged to my nan. She died a couple of years ago but I kept the pillowcase thinking I'd make it into something in the future so this was the perfect thing. Baby would have been my nan's first great granchild, she was a wonderful lady and would have loved to be around to see him so it was nice to have a bit of her in something for the baby.

This is my first quilt ever so it isn't perfect but I don't think it's too bad all things considered! It took me a day to make but I enjoyed it and will definitely be making more in the future as I quite enjoyed it.
