I was sure Mum Helen was having a boy and had a quilt set aside that I made quite recently. However, I knew I had a couple of baby girl quilts in my cupboard so I didn't make another.
Surprise, surprise, along came baby Etta and out of my cupboard came this quilt:
When it was made, way back in March 2012 (I checked my Flickr quilts photos to check the date!)
I called it Emerging Butterflies. However, I decided to re-name it now it has an owner, and it's now called "Patches in Pink".
I made a really scrappy backing for this quilt which I was very pleased with at the time and I still love it now:
I am adding a crocheted stripey blanket that I recently made so that's going in the parcel with the quilt.
Helen is a great crafter herself so she will enjoy this gift, I am sure, and will appreciate the love and care that went into the making.
Can't wait to see them all and perhaps have a cuddle with a new baby!
