BJ's Baby Quilt For Kayla

A sweet little girl quilt with a Hawaiian look.
 Quilted with So Fine off white top and bobbin, with E-E freehand floral design. Batting is Hobbs I think, BJ brought it so I am not sure
 Heather at Needlework Tuesday has asked us to show a Granny square quilt we have made and I have one to display, I made it for my oldest son over 40 years ago! It was my first and last major crochet project it is wool so I have to keep it in the cedar chest away from gnawing insects!
 This I called the Joseph Coat [of Many Colors!], made by my Mum for my youngest son when he was 3 or 4, I must search out a photo of him wearing it. I had planned to give it to his little boy but somehow it slipped my mind and now that boy is a very tall six year old and I am very sure it will not fit. Perhaps he will have a little brother or sister who can wear it, my Mum would have loved that.

I love your afghan. I do hope that pull it out occasionally and cuddle in it. I do agree, that the cedar chest is a safe place to keep it stored.

Joseph's coat is lovely. Great job by your mom. I'd love to see a photo of your son wearing it.

Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.
