    Baby girl quilt

    I just finished this quilt for a little baby girl who was born premature because her mum was too stressed due to the floods here in Queensland, they just lost everything, were only left with the clothes on their back So I thought at least this little one would get something nice to call her own even if the world out there looks pretty grey
    It was mostly made with scraps I had left from another quilt. Because I thought the middle part looked a little bland for a baby I added those pink hearts to lift it up a bit. Thanks for looking!!!

    What a lovely generous thing to do. The quilt is precious and will be a wonderful keepsake for the baby and encouragement for the parents.

    It is a very lovely quilt, I love your added embellishments, the hearts and lace and the little pink embroidered flowers. You did very nice work for this little one. I am sure her mother will treasure your love and thoughtfulness in making this quilt.

    That's so sweet. Love the little hearts and lace. You're a kind and thoughtful person to do this and I know the parents will appreciate it. Best wishes to them, the new baby and all who have suffered from the floods.

    It's beautiful Elfi.....it not only represents the start of the little one's life but also of new beginnings. What a lovely thing you have done for them. Thanks for sharing and reminding us of how our lives can change in an instant.

    We have no worries of floods here in the West....but the fires are a constant concern.

    You did a great job and a wonderful thing for this sweet little innocent baby. I'm sure the parents were very appreciative. The hearts are just lovely on it. Thanks for posting.
