for baby faith.

05 April 2009





so here's the story:
last sunday our pastor said that an old member of the church was expecting a baby.
apparently they needed alot of items to welcome her.

the church threw an anonymous baby shower today.
and among those gifts, was this baby quilt i made.

i was not at the shower, but i know the quilt made it there safely.
{via the assistant pastor...aka the hubby's best friend.}

i was being bad rachel and didn't start working on it until thursday.
i pieced it thursday and completed it friday night.
{while the hubby and the above mentioned best friend watched a movie.}

i was in a hurry friday night, so i finished the binding by machine.
{so NOT my favorite way, but it turned out pretty.}

i know that to most people the label is lacking information...
since it was an anonymous gift, i chose to just use the baby's name...faith.

{the photos were taken at night, sorry for the lighting.}

many, many thanks to john for swaping fat quarters with me.
this quilt would NOT have been the same without them!!!

Pin It!

I love the simple note. It says it all. Stippling is my favorite thing to do...I know I am nearing the end of a project.

Sherri said...

What a wonderful and heartfelt (and heartful) gift!

Anne said...

Is that a disappearing 9-patch? Very CUTE!

dotti white said...

Wow, Rachel, I am so impressed. Not just that you made the quilt top itself but that you quilted it, too. Do you do your stippling on a regular sewing machine? It looks like it and it is beautiful. I am sure it will be one of Faith's favorite quilts! You are an inspiration!
