a baby quilt

my friend V FINALLY had her baby, after what seemed like the longest human gestation in history. Seirosuly, that kid came out at a smidge under 10 lbs!!! In the great Jewish tradition of not doing anything until the baby is actually here, I did nothing. So when Hubs ran into her husband in a hospital elevator, I knew it was time to put some sort of baby gift together.

Once I know her name, I have another gift in mind, but in the mean time, I put this little quilt together. It can be a stroller blanket, but I hope that she’ll just use it as a doll quilt when she gets to be that age. The room theme colors are raspeberry and chocolate, or Napolitana Ice Cream as I like to call it. Entirely from my stash, and all the white is vintage pillow cases.
