Another baby born - another quilt gifted

My best friend's new grandson was born last week. I recently found out that the expected baby was going to be a boy and I already had two boy quilts in my stash. I decided which one to gift to little Albie , made the label and sewed it on. Now it's ready to wrap up and put in the post tomorrow.

I made the quilt back in October 2014 and it finally has a new baby to enjoy it.
The original quilt was called "Fairy Lights" from a pattern by Ruth Buchanan. But I have renamed it (at my husband's suggestion) "Magic".  Little Albie made a very protracted entrance to the world and his Mummy must have felt it was "Magic" when he finally chose to be born!


The quilt measures 42" square, a perfect size for a Playmat or snuggling quilt.
Proof  I have been steadily working through my scraps is that I only have scraps from the border fabrics in my stash.


  1. Good organisation having a couple of baby quilts on standby!

  2. Your elephant fabric is a delightful addition to this charming quilt. Having some baby quilts on hand is a relief, isn't it? How do their births sneak up on us?

  3. Magic is a great name for a magical looking quilt. Lucky Albie. Great way to work through the scraps.
