A friend wanted a special christening present for her soon-to-be Godson, and commissioned me to make a fleece-lined quilt with the baby's name on it. She didn't want it to bee 'too babyish', as she wants him to be able to carry on using it for some years to come. And she wanted it to include some dark blue fabrics and star motifs, to tie in with other things he already has in his bedroom.
With such a special gift to make, and such a specific brief, I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out. But, in the end, I was really, really happy with it. So was my friend. And so were the parents of her new Godson. Phew, phew and phew!!!
