When I was pregnant with Leto, a long time friend of my mom’s who could not attend the baby shower because she lives in Vermont, but who sent her gift with a friend she had seen who was going to my shower had hand made me a quilt. It was the first quilt I owned though it is not mine. . .but Leto’s. It was beautiful to me and small but I was so impressed by it for some reason. It was and will always be my favorite baby blanket and I used it for Micah when he was a baby too. I’ll post a photo of Leto as a baby sleeping on the quilt under this paragraph. He loved it too and it is pretty much the only thing I still have from when he was a baby. Now that I make quilts, I see that baby quilts or at least square block quilts typically made for babies are very simple but very pretty. I always loved patchwork in general. I took a look at Leto’s baby quilt before I had made this quilt to give me an idea of what to do. I liked the tri-color pattern so I decided to go with that. A woman from church was pregnant and we were planning to have a baby shower for her at church. I didn’t have a lot of time or money but I was able to find matching fabrics for a good affordable price and I had left over batting. I decided I could make a baby boy quilt quickly enough, and so I did so! It really only took me a few hours total. I used my favorite colors! When the gift was opened and they realized I had made the blanket, the couple were happy and were very thankful. The little baby boy has since been born and I hope he has been receiving peaceful sleep on his quilt!
