My Favorite Project To Date…

Hello everyone! Alisha here. Today I’m sharing my favorite project I’ve made to date. In December, my oldest son’s teacher and her husband were blessed to adopt a newborn baby girl. We were all surprised and elated by the news! I knew I wanted to make something for the new baby from her class. After thinking, I realized a handprint quilt would be a perfect gift.

After deciding on my project, I sketched out the quilt design and calculated my fabric needs. I decided on a simple block design with sashing between the blocks. There were 21 students in his class so in order to make a square quilt, I needed 3 more blocks. Another teacher’s mother does machine embroidery. She made me 3 squares with baby’s name, baby’s birth stats, and a Bible verse I felt was fitting. The verse I chose was “For this child, I have prayed” from 1 Samuel 1:27. alisha quilt 2

After I finished the baby quilt, I realized I had enough material left to make something else. On Eleri’s recommendation, I made a Gracie romper from Peek a Boo Pattern Shop. It was a beautiful addition to the quilt, and I hope the sweet little girl can wear and enjoy it this summer!

I delivered the quilt to my son’s teacher today. It was wonderful to share this gift of love with his teacher and celebrate the beautiful new life in her family!
