A stitch in time....

I have a quilt from my Mom's side of the family that is over 100 years old. It is very thread bare, but the work involved is just too beautiful. I had it on the bed, but Tabasco, my cat, decided that it was hers and it became covered in hair. I have since washed it and packed it away till V is older and I can tell her the origin of the quilt etc.

Mom came to the rescue and made me not 1 but 2 quilts (My Mom's handiwork is very much part of the nursery!). I asked for "vintage floral fabrics" and my Mom decided on Sun bonnet Sue.

She used lace that belonged to my gran and hand embroidered extra detail on all the squares. When I first saw the few squares she had so lovingly done, I decided it was too beautiful for the floor and we decided it would be the cot quilt.

Luckily we had been shopping for some more fabric for the cot quilt and I had fallen in love with some other fabrics. The colours and patterns are just too beautiful - people did look strangely at me when I mentioned it was for a baby quilt!!
V loves doing tummy time on this quilt and it is something that will grow with her.

The Paisley and the dog rose are my favourite patterns!  I am truly blessed to have such a talented Mom - thanks Mom xoxox
