One of the ministries of my church is to give each person that is baptized a quilt to commemorate the day. The group that makes them, the Baptismal Quilters, is one of the aspects that drew me to the church in the first place. That and a 10:45 a.m. service and a true acceptance of all that is practiced, not just preached.
Angela’s quilt is a beautiful pink and green design. It is her only girly quilt since all the others were made before she was born and we knew she was a girl.
I got to do the free motion quilting on her quilt which makes it extra special because her mom had a piece of the creation. I may have gone a little overboard with the density and customization, but I prefer tight quilting and I believe the changes in design help the different fabrics stand out.
One of the favorite parts is the label. I love the way they included so much information about why the quilt was made. I made have to add embroidery to my bucket list of sewing techniques to learn.
Now Angela has a quilt or knitted blanket for every day of the week. We’ll have to change them out each night once she is old enough to sleep with a blanket.
