Cloud Quilt

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?

Ingrid is one lucky girl. See her other handmade quilts here and here.

    aw, thanks you. it was such a pleasure to make – my first ever time hand quilting, and i immediately fell in love with it. i've just finished a queen sized one for my friends who just got married. now, if only i could make a start on the one for nathan and i before the end of the year, all will be well.

    Claire – I can't believe it was your first time hand quilting! Beautiful job. Yes, you and Nathan are due for a quilt of your own. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
