Nancy emailed me some photos of a quilt she finished recently and I wanted to share it with you. Made for her fifth grandchild who is due in about a month, and named "Sweetie Tweeties for Abigail", it features five embroidered blocks using my Lil' Birdies vintage embroidery pattern. She embroidered the birds in blue, then framed each block with a pretty pink floral print and surrounded them with alternating white and print squares. So pretty, and I'm sure Abigail will treasure it always.
I'm so glad that people are rediscovering the value of handcrafted baby gifts. They're so much more personal than mass-produced ones, especially if you make them yourself. But, even if you don't have the skills to do that, a handcrafted gift made with love and care by someone else is almost as special.
Thanks, Nancy, for sharing! And just so you know, I'm always happy to showcase the work of my readers and customers. It's inspiring for those of you who are new to embroidery to see where you can go with your new-found skills.
