I think it’s about time to get back to documenting our little lady’s handmade gifts.
This photo of Ingrid is one of my favorites. Her little pursed lips, that tight cuddly bundle of a baby, the beautiful handmade hat and quilt…
My friend Claire made the quilt, and we’ve used it countless times. It was the perfect size for swaddling Ingrid as a newborn, and later, for draping over her in the crib or car seat. Claire sews exclusively with quality vintage and secondhand fabrics in her line of goods, my favourite dress. Because of that, the blanket felt soft and buttery from the first time we used it.
I didn’t notice at first glance is that Claire had hand-quilted this piece. Not only that — the quilting is in the shape of clouds! What a charming detail, don’t you think?
