Wonderful!! Those boy quilts are a challenge for me but this?! This is great. I can see why you'd be sad to give it away.

What totally beautiful things. The fishy print really makes me smile close up. What a lucky little baby boy.

This is absolutely beautiful work. Hats off to you for finishing (I have too many tops and nothing else to show for it). Great use of the coordinating fabrics for this quilt. Lucky baby.

I can see why you would hate to give that away. It is wonderful. The pillow is so sweet, your gift tag fabulous. I'm going to have to get out a thesaurus for more adjectives if I keep going. You are the best gift giver!!!

This is a wonderful quilt! Perfect!!! The receiver is blessed to have this treasure.

The most beautiful things I received when having children were handmade quilts made for my children. I can't remember any other gift as much as the quilts. I often want to learn to make one, but I can't get over the skill. Those quilts you made are amazing. How can I match that? If you have two weeks to go to make yourselves quilts, you better hop to it. Actually, you should relax and enjoy this time with the other two little ones. It will be a mad house soon. ;)

Gorgeous. What kind of sewing machine do you have? I like making bags but my machine isn't handling multiple layers well.

I put "quilt" in the search bar for blogger, and came across your site as highly relevant. This is a very beautiful quilt and you have done a great job quilting it. It is a quilt made to love.

I adore the goldfish material! Nice work.

I would be so embarrassed to make something for you! But I WOULD!!!! So consider it a gift. The idea that I just made you something!

That is a great quilt. I really enjoy your color schemes and layouts. And the pillow, if I reversed my hubby's little operation, had another baby...would you make me one? Feel confident in saying yes, cause it ain't ever gonna happen!

Mirre said...

Oh I'm sooo amazed. What a great quilt. I probably would have kept it being the selfish monster that I am. Too gorgeous. I hope she was a very good friend. You really do great work and I don't know how you manage it all being the little bit pregnant that you are. I hope you're feeling well.

Heather said...

The quilt is amazing! What a lucky friend, I'm sure she will love it.

And I can't believe the baby is almost here! I am so excited for you!!!
