Every quilt has a story...thus why we created Quilt Story! :) But some have more than others, this quilt is the perfect combination for me! Sweet simple story entirely incorporated into the quilt. Sorry you'll have to read to find out. This quilt was made by Julie from Julie's Quilts...stop by and see some great quilt and block inspiration, and check out this sweet story of another quilt she made for another child in need. Go Julie!!
Back in 2010 while I was pregnant with N, my cousin was also pregnant with her first child. Our babies were supposed to be about 5 months apart. Little did we know that her daughter would be born just 2 months after N weighing in just over 2 pounds and 14 inches long. K spent almost 3 months in the NICU before she was able to come home.
During her stay in the NICU, her parents decorated her incubator with receiving blankets. Just after her first birthday, her mom asked me to make a quilt out of the receiving blankets. The large squares in the quilt are K's receiving blankets and the 25-patch blocks are made with Twirl by Me and My Sister Designs. I quilted with white thread in a meandering pattern. The quilt is all washed up and snuggly and will be delivered to K next week. I can't wait to see photos of this happy, healthy, almost 2-year old with her new quilt!!
The quilt is twin sized or a double coverlet.
