When quilts have babies

Often, when I'm making a quilt, I make a LOT of blocks and then arrange them to the design and size I like. This usually means left-over blocks to make little baby quilts with.

So when I made this quilt for Ella's next birthday ...

Ella's quilt on the line 

... there were enough blocks left over to make this cute little baby quilt ...

Baby vintage quilt 

(It hasn't been gifted yet so I won't say who it might be for!)

I blogged about this quilt a while ago ...


Values quilt - Front 

But I haven't yet shown you the new baby ...


This one will be sent over to the Bumble Beans Quilt Basics charity organised by the wonderfully talented and generous Victoria.

Quilt Basics provides handmade quilty love to homeless families in the NYC area. It is a wonderful cause and I encourage you to get involved if you can.

I just love making babies  ;-)
