I had been wanting to make Vivian a sweet, girly baby quilt, but for some reason was stuck being "sensible" and decided against it because we have a stack of perfectly nice, if rather boyish, baby quilts. But I was feeling kind of bad about it. I even made a large quilt (which I still need to show you!) telling myself it was "in Vivi's honor" because I used floral prints and a pink binding, but somehow it just didn't seem quite the same.
So, you can imagine how thrilled I was when this perfect gift arrived in the mail from a girlfriend in Maine! How did she know this would be just the thing to send? Oh, and the package came wrapped in brown paper that had pink polka dots; how fun is that to find waiting on your doorstep? She got all inspired to make stuff with vintage sheets after reading about the girly skirts I made, and so sent me her first vintage sheet project. Isn't it lovely? And it's the perfect, light weight for a new, little baby. And so perfectly girly and sweet. She's right, every baby does need a quilt of her (or his) own, even if there are already stacks of blue baby quilts in the closet:)
This sweet image is a postcard she found while cleaning out her grandpa's house after he passed away. She wrote that it made her think of how Sam will take care of Vivian. I told that to Sam and he loves looking at it and pointing out which one is him and which one is Vivian.
