BQF

Amy's Creative Side


I am linking up to Amy's Creative Side and Blogger's Quilt Festival to share this baby quilt, the most important one to me for 2012. Thank you for stopping by and looking.

I made this quilt for my best friend of 23 years first grandchild. David Michael Platt was born on January 31, 2012 to Amanda and Justin Platt. When I first saw the Backyard Baby fabric line designed Patty Sloniger, for Michael Miller, I knew I wanted to use it for little Davids quilt. What I imagined was ants tunneling through the jars full of insects, tall trees running up both sides with the woodpeckers peeking out, and the play yard on the top and bottom. I wanted the quilt to have lots of things for a baby's eyes to focus on. The fabric reminded me of all the things our kids loved to do when they were little ones.

He is such a blessing to all of us! It is awesome to make quilt for people you love and cherish. Laura may you life be filled with many such blessings and happiness. I cherish your friendship even more after all these years.
