A Patchwork Quilt for Baby Sam

A Patchwork Quilt for Baby Sam

I have just completed this patchwork quilt for baby Sam (my second grandson). It will be for his Christmas present.
It was difficult to find the time to work on it recently, what with all the business at the cottage since the end of July. However, I have finished it and I am quite pleased with it. There is no ‘Jo-annes’ near me so I have to rely on small shops and the internet to get the supplies that I need and I was held up with the finishing of it until my favourite sewing machine got here from America.
The quilt has a jungle theme, which I chose to match with Sam’s bedroom.
I do hope he likes it. He’s a bit young to appreciate it now of couse, but in time he may come to like the pictures and the bright colours.
…and of course, no jungle is complete without an elephant, so the elephant may go with it (if I can bear to part with it).
Meanwhile, the elephant is having a sleep while he waits for Christmas.
Now if I can just find a box big enough to pack them both?

  1. That is a wonderful gift, Star. And I love the elephant, too. I would have a hard time parting with it! :-)
