A Mini Quilty for Alice
When my great-niece and namesake Alice was born, I made a crib quilt for her--my first ever crib quilt. Her older sister Katie was so taken with this quilt that she wanted me me to make one for her. So soon I made her a "napping quilt." Pictured here are Katie on her quilt at the left and Alice on hers. This photo was taken 8 years ago! Both girls became attached to their "quilties," as they called them. Even today, the quilts are folded at the ends of their beds.
Fast forward several years. Katie was going to England with her grandparents, who wanted her to pack lightly, since they were all going to have to manage their own luggage. Katie asked me if I could make her a very small quilt from some of the same fabrics as her "quilty" since she was concerned she'd not be able to sleep well without her quilty. This I did, and the little quilt made the trip to England and then joined the other quilt on her bed.
