Anyway, in return, she asked if I could recreate a very special quilt for her.
This was her own baby blanket that her mother made for her before she was born.
A darling Mother Goose quilt! As you can see, it was very well loved.
Valerie really wanted to have one like it for her own daughter (who may well be the cutest baby on the planet... just saying), but she and her mom couldn't find the pattern anywhere, and because her mom in now legally blind, she couldn't make up a new pattern herself.
So, Val asked if I thought I could do it. And, naturally, I said "Sure!"
I came up with the pattern simply by tracing the appliques, although I did round out some of the curves until they looked right to me. I had to seriously think this one through to get everything right - and I am SO pleased with the end result. So, here is the newly recreated Mother Goose Quilt:
Valerie choose these beautiful fabrics, and they look so awesome together!! She has such a great eye!
The back... I had to do another stripe! lol!
