The quilt's new owner, four-and-a-bit months old, checking out mum's handiwork. The quilt IS square, honest -- it just kept getting bunched up by eagerly grasping little hands, so it looks a little wonky.

    It's gorgeous! I've been thinking about making a quilt, and yours is a great inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you all so much for your kind words. Much to my delight, the baby seems to really like it -- there has been much scritchy-scratchy feeling of all the seams, and he falls asleep clutching the fuzzy border. Makes all the hard work seem worth it :)

    It's so amazing to see this in a finished state after watching you progress with it over the years. What an absolutely beautiful quilt! (And of course, little H. is the most adorable addition to it!)

  • nkdolin 7y

    I've always wanted to make this quilt. I would never have the patience for hand piecing and quilting such a large quilt! Congratulations-- non-quilters have no idea what an accomplishment that is!

    Thank you everyone!

    @ teaquilt -- the pattern is "Jewelled Squares" from Kaffe Fassett's "Glorious Patchwork".

    It's a wonderful quilt (and baby of course)
    I love how you used all this blue and squares and made it into something really great!

    I just discovered the history of your quilt on SMS.
    What a lovely, lovely story!
    I adore your quilt, I adore the calm and togetherness-with-friends that I feel.

    Your baby boy is perfectly dressed for this shot :-)
    By now he must be quite grown up.
