Back in July when I was searching for upholstery fabric, I happened to come across this wonderful Christmas fabric panel, designed by Susan Winget. It took me all of five seconds to decide to order it to make a little quilt for Baby T.
Not only is it colorful and fun, but the horse reminds me so much of the horse his mama has declared will one day be his.
For the back of the quilt, I ordered a sweet print with sheep and barns, snowy trees and Psalms.
I finally got the quilt put together in November when I knew I’d be going to see Baby T and his mama.
Since hand quilting is not my forte, I tied it.
I used a medium-loft batting and white, red, and green thread to tie it.
Once I had it tied, it was time to bind the edges.
I used a dark green fabric for the binding. It was simple enough just to cut a wide strip, sew it to the front, turn it under, pin the edges, and stitch it down on the back.
I was so happy with how it looked.
And I hoped Baby T and his mama would love it, too!
This sweet boy loved his quilt and knew it was his the moment it was unwrapped. In fact, he kept pulling it onto the floor and snuggling with it, which made his auntie’s heart so happy!
