Handmade by Heidi, baby quilt...

Heidi from her cute Handmade by Heidi blog made this darling quilt for her friends baby. This is a sweet story of friendship and love. Heidi has loads of fun stuff on her blog. One super fun thing she does is a Friday Night Sew in, where everyone can link up their Friday night projects. I think I am going to be joining that party! Thanks Heidi...


" Have you ever made a friend at work? A friend that you always know you will keep in touch with? Well, I have one of those friends - her name is Katherine. She's funny and dramatic and always made me laugh.

Her and I happen to be the same age.. just a few weeks apart. Now I must admit - when she told me her and her man were trying to have another baby, I thought she was crazy. And I'm pretty sure I told her that.. more than once. But that was because my youngest and final child is 6yrs old and keeps me busier than rush hour traffic on a Friday.. before a holiday.



But I admired her determination and prayed for her during her struggles. Knowing that any baby that was wanted this much - was going to be loved beyond belief.

Once she discovered she was having a girl - I was super excited to make a quilt for her. Since I only have boys - I'm always ready to make something girly!



I used Woodland Bloom by Lila Tueller and the backing is super soft flannel from the same line. Moda really knows how to do flannel!

I also made a matching Brainy Baby Ball. It was fun to make and it's hard to put it down. It's soft.. and fits in your hand perfectly. I love this thing!! After it was done though.. I wished I had sewn some bells inside.

And even though Katherine and I no longer work together - and we live 1,800 miles apart, I've been able to keep up on Baby Josephine's milestones through pictures and updates. She's adorable and I hope she knows how much I enjoyed making this little gift for her! "
