A quilt for Lauren's Lamb

My granddaughter, Lauren came over a few weeks ago and saw some quilt blocks that I had received at my quilt guild the evening before from a tinner project. A half metre of fabric was placed in a coffee tin and a theme taped to the inside of the lid. We had to make a 12 1/2" block using some of the fabric on that theme. Lauren loved the various blocks and then said that her beanie baby lamb, Euwy, would love to have her own quilt :-). I asked her what kind of quilt the lamb would like and she pointed to the lemoyne star block from the tinner project. I led her to my fabric stash and asked her what colours she'd like...she immediately picked up a pink floral fat quarter...that girl knows just what she likes LOL. I was teaching a quilt class that evening and used her chosen fabrics to make a test block....multi tasking :-). Here is a picture of the block I emailed to Lauren for her approval. An email arrived in my inbox saying that Lauren liked the block and so did Euwy.

I finished the binding last night while Lauren sat beside me wondering how a needle with thread could go through fabric :-). Here Euwy is getting wrapped up in her new quilt:

I'm thinking that maybe this young lady is ready to try her hand at some sewing of her own soon!

Terribly cute!

I love the edge of the quilt.

The edge kind of went that way by happy accident! It's the same fabric as the black with the flowers, but only the edges of the flowers show so it looks like a matching polka dot :-). Love it when those things happen without planning it.

That is a lovely little quilt! At first I thought you had made teeny tiny hexagons (when I clicked on the picture of the lamb wrapped up in it). She's a very lucky little girl. :-)

I think we have a little lamb like that at our house, but it does not have its own quilt! I'm glad Euwy and Lauren like their quilt.

Euwy is being faithfully tucked in under her new quilt every night! Lauren says Euwy told her to tell you "Thank you Grandma!"

Awww! So glad Euwy is warm and cozy every night in her little quilt :-).

Hugs, Grandma
