{ sewing } baby quilt for Rory

We have been celebrating the sweetest news a la Fence.


There is a new cousin to love.


To snuggle.


To grow with.

Little Rory, we can't wait to love you up in person.   (New Mexico is So Far!)

Rory quilt

miss chris and her girlies


Supplies:  vintage sheeting + quilting cotton + flannel backing.  

Technique: In lieu of batting, I used simple quilter's cotton inside.  This is not a fluffy or stiff quilt -- very lightweight!  Running-stitch embroidery both before and after quilting.  Cotton heart doily applique on reverse.  Crazy quilted stripes in all directions. 

I loved making this one with all my heart.  The sheets are so incredibly soft, and the doily adds that special extra texture that babies love. We heard the nursery was pink and brown (or tan), so I just went with that. I hope it doesn't clash too terribly much and gets lots of use.

Beautiful. Who wouldn't be inspired to snuggle?


It's so sweet! I love embroidery on quilts and the little doily is just too cute! Your little one looks like she was inspecting the quilt hehe


I LOVE those fabrics. The "Snuggle" is a precious touch. What a lucky baby girl.
