Welcome to the World Quilt for Baby Clara

My friend Vicki became a Gramma a few weeks ago with the birth of her first grandchild.  Of course that is an occasion that requires a new quilt to welcome the little one to the world!

It looks wonky in this picture because we have to tilt it to catch the light in the kitchen, and we can't photograph it straight on.  Believe me--It's square.  

If this looks familiar, it's made with the leftover fabric from the Arc en Ciel Quilt from a few year's ago. 

This is the back side.  I picked purple because Vicki likes purple -- not a baby color, but I wanted Baby Clara to be reminded of her Gramma Vickie when she sees this quiltie.

Here's a detail shot of the blocks and the quilting from the front.

And here's me, as the quilt-maker sending love and light to my old friend, embarking on this new role in life.  I have no doubts she'll be a wonderful Gramma!
[Vickie -- I'll try to get it in the mail this week ...]

I have this picture Vickie from 9 or 10 teaching Oliver to make homemade pasta noodles.

This is how it looked in the washing machine when it was done with the spin cycle.  
It just made me happy to see it on display at the bottom the washing machine.

That's really beautiful, especially as seen in the bottom of your washer! I just got a reminder the other day that the goddaughter is pregnant again, due in November this time, I think, so it won't be long before I'll be making another welcoming baby quilt myself.
