Quilts are meant to be made with love and care for someone extra special. Some close online quilting buddies and I collaborated to create a baby quilt for our friend Natalia who had a baby boy a couple months ago. Not only was this quilt made with love by my talented friends, but it was also shipped around the country for each stage of creation! Candy from Candied Fabrics hand-dyed some beautiful custom fabric for the project. Amy E from Amy’s Creative Side made the special baby quilt pattern and pieced it together with Amy W of AmyLouwho. I then added the appliqué for the darling baby’s name, Brayden. And Vicki from Sew Inspired quilted the entire quilt with beautiful geometric patterns and even added hand quilting inside the letters and bound the quilt in different colors! Amy E personally presented the finished baby quilt to Natalia, and she and Baby Brayden love it!
Check out everyone’s contributions!

Our quilty group made a baby quilt for Amy W’s Babylouwho a couple years ago too!
I wonder which of us will have a baby next! I’m not even married yet so it’s probably not me!
