Ginger’s Quilts: Wince’s Baby Quilt

Grandma Ginger has been busy making baby quilts for a while. Over the last seven years she’s been blessed with nine grand children, and she’s never missed a baby quilt for any of them. A few weeks ago this arrived in the mail and it’s been put through the ringer already! Between baby “fluids”, sticky toddlers, and dropped snacks this quilt has been washed a number of times in the few weeks we’ve had it.

 Wince recently discovered his toes.

I tried to get a good shot of it and failed, Ginger used a feathered design for the quilting. It’s quite cute and adds to a well-used look on the quilt. This quilt is so soft and pliable, I wish my quilts were like hers. Maybe I need to wash them a few time once finished.

The little duckies where then all appliqued on top of the quilting. I love that they have wheels instead of feet. They remind me of an old fashioned pull toy.

 Wince sure is pleased with his new quilt!

The blues came from Ginger’s stash. The woman practically has a store in her house! The backing is a chevron printed fabric with ombre blues that match the pinwheels on the quilt top. The binding is a matching batik, and of course Ginger hand sewed the binding. I know there’s contention between hand sewn and machine sew binding, but it’s something she likes to do in the evening when sitting in the living room with my father-in-law before bed.
