This small quilt is a gift for a new mom to be's baby shower next weekend. I've known this lady for about 25 years since she was about 12. It took her a long time to meet Mr Right and now they are expecting their first - a little boy. This pattern is a MSQC and is in the tutorials. 2 charm packs used with poly blend batt and glide threads.

Thanks all.  I put the quilt together last fall at a quilt retreat (I made 2 tops at the same time) as I knew of one baby quilt I was going to need. Then I found out about this little one coming so finished this one with the border fabric and got it quilted pretty simply.  It did go together pretty fast. I have another one using this pattern to be made with batiks and black sashing.  It may end up on my bed!

Looks very nice! My mother made by herself such similar patchwork pleads for our both children when they were born. To tell the truth, I appreciate a lot such gifts and they mean a lot to me. More than all when our children grew up I saved them for their kids. Really, this thing is so cute and memorable. Frankly speaking, I have a lot of experience with children and I can convey to my children a lot of useful information besides these blankets. I remember how it was difficult for me to breastfeed our second child, I had no milk and we had to use to feed the baby. I remember the times when I couldn't sleep and rocked the children in her arms all night. Honestly, it was difficult.
