My Favorite Quilt - Blogger's Quilt Festival







Over at parkcitygirl, I've joined the Quilt Festival! When you join you're asked to showcase your favorite quilt, so here is my favorite quilt. This is the Heart in a Heart quilt I made for Gigi. It's my favorite because I made it while her heart was still beating inside me - she's the little heart and I'm the big one. It also has extra significance because she came right on the heels of my sad baby story so I was giving her some luck for her heart to keep beating inside me!

Here are some more photos of the quilt. Click to see them bigger and enjoy!

I love the quilt, and your baby is adorable. I especially liked how you put your story down - while her heart was beating inside you, and she's the little heart, you're the big one. That is just BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for sharing.

Oh your quilt and baby are so adorable! It doesn't seem 5 minutes since mine was that small (and cute!) now shes all grown up and in that 'grungy' phase teenagers go through! I love her to bits though - piercings and all! Thank you for sharing your sad story too.I am still in tears but so happy that you have a little sweetheart to cherish now.

Silly as it may sound I just did a heart print baby quilt for the girl that waits on us every Saturday morning at Waffle House. I wanted to label it wrapped in love, but I just couldn't make the label. I was also superstitious so I just gave it to her without the label. Your quilt is wonderful.

A wonderful quilt and a very cute baby! I read your 'sad baby story' and it made me cry! I am glad you came through the whole thing so well. Do you really do everything by hand? Wow!

I really love the sentiment in Gigi's quilt (and Axel's).
I'm so glad your story had a happy ending.

I love the idea of the heart within a heart representing the mother and baby. Very sweet and sentimental.

I was sorry to hear about Axel - I hadn't read that far back on your blog since I found it a few weeks ago. I can only imagine what it would be like to loose a baby. Thank you for sharing your story!

The heart quilt and Gigi turned out beautifully!

Cheers,
Christine
