A Quilt for Lily

I just finished a custom quilt for a baby named Lily. She is due to make her appearance in early July. Her mother chose the colors based on a duvet cover from Pottery Barn. The duvet will be used on the spare twin bed in the nursery. I wanted the crib quilt match the duvet so I purchased a set of pillow cases from PB in the same fabric and "fussy cut" the lavender and black flowers into 4 inch squares. I then used these squares in the center of each block and pieced it with various lavender, black and white fabrics. I really did not know what I would end up with but this baby knocked my socks off! My daughter loved it so much she has requested I make one EXACTY like it for her, except with her name across the top. I only wish I could have made this quilt for her when she was a baby. Oh well, she is still my baby so now I will make a custom quilt for Eliza Jayne, my sweet, 17 year old baby.


  1. Wow, this is very nice. I love the name applique on the top! The baby will love it.

  2. Such a nice quilt. Baby Lily will love it.
