My Sister's Quilts series

If this is the first time you’re seeing this series, My Sister’s Quilts is the mini quilting memoirs of my sister who is a fantastic quilter and has made baby quilts for each of her 17 nieces and nephews.

I found the fabric for this quilt at IKEA in London, and instantly knew I had to use it to make something!  Then I had a darling little nephew arrive and it seemed like a perfect fit!

I love how the backing fabric and the quilting pattern combined to mimic waves of a sea.

The vikings did not shy away from the stormy sees, but instead they demonstrated their strength and proved their power by setting sail in the midst of the storms.  Because they took hold of opportunities when others were more inclined to take shelter, they became mighty conquerors despite rough waters.

And my dear nephew, in our ever changing and challenging world, I wish for you the same! May your ship be sound, your anchor be strong, and your influence be far reaching!

I’ve always marveled how my sister can match a quilt to the personality of a baby she’s not yet met, and how the baby grows up to fulfill that quilted personality!  Does that make any sense?  Whatever, the case, however it works, David sure loves his baby quilt from Aunt Fessy!

  1. This is such a treat as I never saw this quilt before & was wondering about it. Thanks for sharing. Wow even the fabric crossed an ocean to match the theme. Well done & what a keepsake!
