Baby Love Quilt and Pattern
When a lovely young colleague of mine announced that she was expecting, of course, I was keen to make her a quilt for her new arrival. Having a baby is, after all, a very special life event. When I was thinking about the design of the quilt I wanted it to represent something special about Mother and Child. I thought about the child in utero and the love a mother has for her baby and that was how I came up with the idea of the heart inside a heart. The small baby heart to represent the baby, wrapped in the big heart of her Mother.
This is a quilt made for a baby girl. I thought for a little girl, pastel florals would work well.
I think this design would work equally well with brights, novelty prints, a single colour or very scrappy quilt. It would be adorable in plaids too.
Incidentally I pieced this quilt on my Singer 66 Lotus Treadle C 1923. Such a pretty machine.
