Gift for a new baby

At the end of last year I completed a few baby quilts to stash away ready for a few babies I knew were going to be born this year.

Our next door neighbour's son and his wife had their third daughter on 29th March.
From my stash of quilts I chose this cheerful Rainbow Strips Quilt:

This quilt for Freya joins the two others I gave to her older sisters, Isla and Neve.
I have been searching my quilt photos for a picture of Isla's quilt but frustratingly I cannot find it!
A few years ago I made a series of baby quilts featuring appliqued cats and teddy bears which you can see on my Flickr page, koshka2 photostream. They can be found in the Teddy bear quilts and Cat quilts sets.
Isla's quilt was the same design featuring cats and Sunbonnet Sues and Overall Bills.
However, sister Neve's quilt is this one:
It's nice to be able to welcome a new baby into the world with a quilt for snuggling.  Isla and Neve have loved their quilts so I hope little Freya does too.


  1. You are so right that it's lovely to welcome a baby with a quilt! Your ranbow strip quilt is wonderful! Neve's quilt looks as though it has some super fun fabrics, is it an eye spy quilt?

    1. Not really an I Spy quilt as the centre of each block is a chicken fabric. I had lots of these centres and matching strips and scraps left over so they are squirrelled away in a ziplock bag in my Projects drawer so I can make another similar one sometime in the future.
