Baby Girl Name Quilt

About 2 months ago, we found out that our realtors wife was expecting. Yeah! A baby...then my mind goes wild with baby quilt ideas. I absolutely love making baby quilts. They make such a special and unique gift for the baby and the parents. And there are way too many children's fabrics out there that are beyond adorable!

We got in touch, so I could get some ideas about the nursery decor and boy, girl or "we didn't find out". After some email exchanges, she basically left it up to me to come up with something. They definitely knew it was a girl and they had a name picked out already.

It is almost a little overwhelming when I get to pick fabric for someone. I am always in search of something "just right" and with about a gazillion choices out there, sometimes it's hard.

Knowing the baby is a girl, there were butterflies in the nursery decor and her name was going to be Olivia, I think I came up with something pretty wonderful. As I beamed with pride when the final product came out of the dryer, I couldn't help but blush a little when she called with glowing praise to tell me how amazing the quilt was. Making someone that happy is why I love sewing quilts for people!

  1. Dana, a million times thank you!!! I absolutely love this quilt and I'm sure our little girl to be will love it as well. I can't tell you what a special touch this has brought to our new family, knowing all the time and energy that you put into this. I can't wait to show it off at my shower next weekend. This is one gift that our daughter can have the rest of her life :0)
