Alexia's Quilt





Today i'm showing off the very first baby quilt I ever made, 10 years ago last September.

I made it for the very first baby in my life, my sister Heidi's first daughter, Alexia. It's just a simple quilt, but I quilted it in a spider web pattern since I had read that spider webs had protective connotations in some cultures. Alexia loved it and still loves it today, so that is all that matters! That's Alexia as a newborn on top, then my sister holding it, and finally Alexia as a three year old snuggling it on the left in the second photo (that's the back). To her right is her sister Lydia.

I used Hobby Lobby flannel for this one too and the footprint pattern faded, though the integrity of the fabric held up fine. Enjoy.

Hi Wendy...thanks so much for your visit....I have scrolled back on your blog to see what you've been up to and I must say I am very impressed! Especially with the fact that you don't own a sewing machine and all of your work has been done by hand. I really love your grandmothers flower garder..love the feedsack fabric...all of your quilts are great!
