A Beautiful Baby Blanket

Last Saturday was Lesley's baby shower (read about that here). I already told you about that. What I didn't tell you is what I gave her as a gift. This story starts a few months ago.

Lesley knew I wanted to throw her a baby shower. So I emailed her and asked for the emails of a few of her friends. I specifically asked for her bridesmaids from her wedding. As speedily as I could, I emailed them and asked if they wanted to help me create a secret present. In the end there were 10 of us participating in creating a baby quilt for our new Baby Girl.

I picked out the fabrics and mailed everyone a square and a fabric pen. Everyone decorated it differently and mailed it back. Some decorated with poems, others with drawings. Every single square is lovely and covered in love.

I just realized I don't have any pictures of my square. Ruh roh. Oh well. It's the colorful one in the middle-ish.  So once everyone mailed me back their squares, I started putting everything together and well, it is gorgeous.

And I know I am very biased. (hahahaha that's funny because some of the cuts were on the bias - that's a quilting joke!!!) But I really loved working on it.

Mostly, I loved making this for two of my favorite people and the third on the way. And I loved giving it to them this weekend. I cannot wait to meet and cuddle their beautiful baby girl. I hope she loves this blanket as much as I loved making it for her.
