Quilt Story

Hi all– I think I’ve already mentioned (a few times!!) that our daughter Ani is expecting a baby girl!  I couldn’t be more happy and excited!  So when she came down from San Francisco in July, we trekked on over to the huge M&L fabric shop so she could pick out fabric for a baby quilt.  And here’s how it went…

First, Ani loaded down with fabric and batting at M&L. (Larry and her Brian came along, but are not big fabric shoppers, so they found the donut shop across the parking lot!)

We hurried home (after a stop a local taqueria) and cut out the squares to be stitched into the quilt.

So this summer, I stitched away, a lot of it sitting in from the the t.v. and watching the Olympics! And finally it was done. The front is quilting cotton and the back, fuzzy flannel.

And a couple weekends ago, Ani opened the quilt at a beautiful baby shower with friends and family.
Now I’m just waiting to take a picture of the new sweet little baby girl all tucked up in her quilt!  Can’t wait!

P.S. I really posted this for you Daisy– hope to see pics of your baby quilt soon!!  xox

  1. Oh Rhonda, what a beautiful quilt, one that is made with so much tender love! Your little grand baby girl is so fortunate to have you as a grandma. I especially like the picture of Ani holding the quilt and you looking up at this new mommy to be, with such admiration! 💖💖💖

  2. Best quilt ever!! Haha we spent so long in M&L… I think the boys thought we died in there. It turned out super beautiful – thanks for all the love you put into it 🙂

  3. Rhonda, you are so talented! That is such a beautiful quilt and so sweet that you made it for a very specific and special little girl. What a wonderful gift that will be in the family for years (generations, even!) to come.

  4. Oh Rhonda, I am so moved!!! What a gorgeous quilt and heart-warming story of how you did this as a family (love the donut shop part 🙂 )

    So many blessings to you and your family …. you have such a loving connecting it seems like. What a gift.
    Love and hugs,
    Debbie xo

    • Oh thanks Kat– really it’s pretty amateur –my grandmother who quilted all the time, called my quilts “serviceable!” But I think they are cozy enough. The most fun part of the whole project is anticipating that baby on they way! Happy week ahead friend… xo
