I made this quilt as an excited aunt, for my new nephew baby Afeeq :)
I am used to using a mix of different fabrics for my quilts, mostly scrappy but this time I used a baby safari themed collection called Imaginarium from Camelot Cottons. The mix of soft turquoise, yellow and grey just exudes sweet elegance. I especially love all the prints! Each print showing a mama animal hugging their babies, so warm and sweet!
This quilt is a labor of love. I made 9 pinwheel blocks, sashed & bodered. But I machine stitched the binding because at that time my sister in law was already in labor!
Lucky I made it in time for this sweet boy to enjoy....
Afeeq Farhan bin Mohd Fathirrahman...the first born of my baby brother...such a cutie!
I have to say photographing a quilt is SO hard! I can't seem to get all of it in photos lol...but I love making this and will continue making more baby quilts...
Baby Afeeq is now almost 3 months old, already smiling & cooing. He is my 4 nephew (3 of whom are my sister's kids) and my parents' 7th grandchild. Here's to many more babies to cuddle and sew for!
|Baby Afeeq...you are loved!!!|
