One of the gifts we brought up to the hospital for our new grandson, Alistair, was this amazing quilt my mother (great-Mammaw) made for him. One of the nurses happened to be in the room when I pulled it out of the bag and she stopped what she was doing to come take a look. The nurse oo’ed and aww’ed, read all the words and helped me hold it up in front of our daughter so she could see the whole thing. The nurse commented on how beautiful it was and my hubby said, “Yeah, her mom is incredibly talented.” The nurse agreed and so did our daughter.

I actually forgot to tell my mother what happened. Bad me!

I love it that the quilt is different, but matches the quilt she made for Zander, our first grandson. The words are so cute!

My mom made this quilt in 1992 for my daughter and now she’s using it for her son. I think she even used it for her dolls until she grew out of playing with dolls.

1992 was before we all had digital cameras, so none of us thought to take a picture of it. While my daughter was over with our grandson she happened to have it with her, so I snagged a picture.

I believe this was the first baby quilt Mom made. Countless washes and 23 years later, it’s still in fantastic shape. It was loved, cared for and gently packed away until it was needed again.

You can’t see the baby feet in the picture, so I saved out a section of the quilt and enhanced it so the baby feet are more visible. It did some funky things with the other fabrics, but you can see the baby feet now! They’re so cute!
