Lily’s Keepsake Quilt

14th February, 2011

This quilt is made of entirely old baby clothes from the wardrobe of one little girl called Lily.  It contains all those clothes too treasured to throw away and was compiled as a keepsake for her parents and also herself to have and cherish when she is older.  Even the broderie anglaise around the heart came from one of her skirts and fitted perfectly to encase her fabric initial.  I truly loved this project and actually have a similar one on the way.  It’s a really lovely way to keep things you can’t bring yourself to throw away without storing them forever more in a box in the loft.  The quilt also has fabric sleeves top and bottom on the reverse so it can be hung if needed.  For more ideas on personalising quilts please visit my QUILT IT gallery.
