On Sunday, I went to a baby shower at The Teahouse in Stanley Park. I think that this may have been the fanciest baby shower I've ever been too. We had a private room looking onto the Burrard Inlet, and a menu of delicious items to choose from for breakfast.
The shower was for a friend in my Bible Study group and her new baby Hunter.
In the last year, I have been introduced to the world of Quilting and have gotten into the habit of making baby quilts for my friends.
For Hunter, I made this:
And I 'wrapped' it like this:
Where did that adorable little giraffe that conveniently coordinates with the quilt come from?
Oh, I made it!
Still needs some perfecting, but I think it looks pretty good for my first stuffed animal!
Baby Hunter loved his quilt and stuffed animal so much, he didn't want to get up:
He was an excellent model.
I have also made these baby quilts:
Now, I have to give credit where credit is due. My good friend, Amanda, taught me everything I know about quilting. She showed me the pattern for these quilts and has helped guide me along my way.
I also blame her for my newfound fabric addiction and the fact that photo's like these set my heart a flutter:
Quilting, and the love of fabric, can be an expensive habit... but it's so worth it when you end up with beautiful gifts!
