In the post Zander’s Baby Quilt, I commented that I didn’t have pictures of the Simba and Nala quilt my mother made for Zander. She promptly sent me the pictures she took.

After he unwrapped it, we held it before him and asked if he knew who it was. He flashed a huge, shy smile and said, “Simba.” Later, again smiling, he pointed at the quilt and said, “Lion King.”

I need to stop forgetting my camera. I wish I’d gotten a picture of his reaction to seeing the quilt. It was so adorable.

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!

Apparently, I forgot to post this one. This is the baby quilt my mom made for my grandson, Zander. I love that all the fabrics used in the quilt are fabrics she used to make clothes for my daughter when she was a baby.

I still have all the clothes, except the clothes Zander could wear, and even a couple of outfits she made for me when I was a baby.

I don’t have any pictures of the second quilt she made for Zander, but it was a really cute Simba and Nala quilt. She gave it to him for Christmas and I forgot my camera. 🙁

Zander's Baby Quilt

My mom surprised my hubby with this gorgeous lap quilt for his birthday. His jaw dropped when he saw all the incredible stitching that went into it. He spread it out on the floor and kept discovering something he hadn’t seen before.

Later, he placed it on his lap and I’d find him looking at it until his cat, Mirage, jumped in his lap and curled up in the middle of it.

I still have light issues inside, so I did the best I could with the pictures. It’s extremely detailed.

And of course, Mister Underfoot has already claimed it. Taking pictures without him in the middle was quite the feat, as usual.

He wasn’t very happy when I made him move so I could pick it up off the floor. I hung it over the back of a chair and he’s currently curled up in the chair pouting. 

I posted pictures of the whole front and back sides, so you can see more detail. 

If you have any questions, feel free to comment and I’m sure my mother will answer.

Another quilt my mother made for my daughter. I found it under all the sheets in the linen closet and took a quick, terrible picture with my phone before returning it to my daughter. We were in a hurry so I didn’t make sure the pictures came out. Mistake. Maybe I can get her to take some better pictures of it sometime.

My daughter was still using this quilt until she moved out.  She was pretty happy when I gave it back to her.

I saw a table runner my mom made and commented on how much I loved the design, so she made me a lap quilt like it for my birthday. It’s gorgeous!

There’s only one problem… Mister Underfoot thinks it’s his. I spread it out and snapped a quick picture of it while he was occupied filling his belly. Otherwise, there would be a big fuzzy in the middle of the picture. So, I didn’t get it perfectly square for the picture and it’s a little fuzzy, but at least you can see the whole thing. I wanted to get the picture posted today, so I opted not to fight Underfoot and post what I had.

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!

My mom gave this beautiful blanket to my husband as a Christmas present. He loves heavy blankets and quilts, so the first thing he did when we got home was spread it out on the bed and climb under it. Between the weight of this quilt and the blanket I crocheted for him, I don’t see how he moves at all in his sleep.

It’s absolutely gorgeous. The eye is immediately drawn to this quilt when you enter the room. I’ve spent more time than I care to admit trying to identify pairs of jeans that were mine.
