Heather's quilt story...a baptism quilt...


Addie's Baptism Quilt

My third sweet daughter was baptized a few months ago. She thought she was getting a quilt because her sisters did. But I never let her see me working on it, and told her I will try to do it on time, but don't think I will be able to.  When she opened her gift, she loved it!  The other girls got a little mad and said "her's is cuter" (it's true, it is)



 Don't you love the snowy photos?
 I fell in love with this color combo, and I want to make another quilt with all these colors....






 You all know the book, I changed it to "for eternity" instead of "as long as I am living." She is ALWAYS my baby! Isn't the embroidery sweet? I created her, and she reminded me of Addie, so I added her to the quilt...



And here is the darling baptism girl...
 Seriously, have you ever seen cuter horse teeth? She is as sweet as she looks! In the spring I plan on taking her out and getting nicer baptism photos, with her quilt of course!


Also, we have a winner from the FABRIC SHOPPE! Taryn wins a half yard bundle of Aneela Hooey's Little Apples. Cute!

It's adorable! I always changed that line too...to "Forever and always, my baby you'll be". Same reason, lol

I wish I'd thought of the baptism quilts way back when. I was lucky to do the 21st birthday, though. =) That is the cutest thing ever. I might have to do that for a friend's son who will be baptised this summer - or help his mom do one. =)

Thank you so much for the giveaway! I was so surprised to see my name! Beautiful baptism quilt, I love the little birdies and the embroidered note!

What a DARLING quilt! I love the big "8" on it! I want to make each of my grandchildren a baptism quilt when they turn 8. I'm also lovin' the colors and the different blocks! Good job! :)

I just love this quilt!! I do have a question. I am still a newbie in the sewing world. Did you handsew or machine sew the birds wings and tails?
