That quilt is absolutely fantastic! So colorful and fun and perfect for little Alice!


Beautiful! We found out on Thanksgiving that my nephew and his wife are expecting their first. Naturally I started thinking about a quilt . . . thanks for the idea! Take care, Byrd


Such a bright and beautiful quilt! And such a bright-eyed and beautiful baby!
I love this pattern - I always called it "square in a square" - yours makes me want to make a fun and bright one, too!


That is so wonderful! Makes me want to get out the Bernina and make a baby quit for someone.


WOW! This just made my day. Gorgeous photos of a beautiful tiny baby enjoying a truly splendid gift quilt. Well done, Aunt Jan!!!! Thanks for sharing with us! xo Sally


Alice was so enthralled with her new quilt! Quite possibly the best moment of the entire weekend :-)


Aww, what a sweet post. Alice's quilt turned out so great! Wonderful choice for a baby quilt. I have one to make for a friend's baby due in February, and this could be the perfect choice. Always love your projects, Jan.


Oh my! What a post! What a beautiful little girl, what a fabulous quilt and, what a great story of gifting it. Handquilting it is such a lovely choice too - I bet is soft and cuddly :0) You have some very sweet novelty prints - I like the hedgehogs and the 3 bears.


What a great I Spy, Jan! It's going to be loved for a long time, I can tell!


What a wonderful baby quilt and even better now that you have seen Alice's reaction to all the bright fabrics! Well done Aunt Jan!!


A perfect baby quilt and a gift for all.


Oh Alice is darling(!) and she is obviously very pleased with her new quilt. I really like the border and the hand quilting makes it so very special. Thank you for the link xx

Everything is great about this, beautiful quilt! such happy colors. All your time with it really paid off. And getting to see that beautiful baby actually enjoying the quilt? Win, win, win!!

Precious!!! Every single second you spent was worth it! What a spacial gift to such a beautiful baby!


Gorgeous! Baby and quilt!


Beautiful baby and quilt! I too keep staring all the colorful fabrics! My grandson was the same way when he was this small, he keep staring all the bright colors on the quilt I lay on the floor for him to keep rolling over....


What a beautiful quilt and how sweet to see the gorgeous Alice loving it as much as the rest of us and MORE...


Ohmygosh -- I choked up when I saw the pictures of the baby mesmerized by all the little prints. What a perfect gift to you for all your hard work! It's beautiful! Such a perfect baby quilt. It will definitely be added to my list of future baby quilts -- surely we'll eventually get a baby in our family LOL. You always put so much work and effort into your quilts and they're amazing -- that's why I love to read your blog!


Beautiful! That quilt is sure to be treasured for a long time! And it's great that you got to gift it in person. I hope you all had a great holiday!

Alice is already loving her beautiful quilt just as Kate and Liz loved their Aunt Jan quilts! So special that you, and all of us, were together to see her excited response. Thank you so much for the lovely treasure.


So cute!! I love that quilt,I love that smiling little baby. I had forgotten about the I Spy blocks. You always have a wonderful blog,I get inspired every time I read it!


Delightful photos! How rewarding to see baby Alice having such a lovely time with her quilt! All that hard work paid off Jan.

It's wonderful--cheery and happy. Looks like Baby Alice is very pleased. And it looks like she's eminently quilt-worthy. When you give a quilt, you look for that spark in the recipient, and I would say she's got it!


Absolutely adorable!!! I just love the blocks and the quilt, and the colors!!!


Ohhhh how sweet and those photos are precious!!

Beautiful quilt and beautiful baby! What a lovely story.



Oh my. That is absolutely perfect in so many ways!! And adorable. ;)

Pam Cope

What a darling cute - a great way to use all those fun little prints, and so perfect to get to see baby Alice enjoying it. Good job, Auntie Jan.


Oh how wonderful! I'm a sucker for any post containing both a quilt and a baby. That quilt is very special, although, from reading your blog for a while now, I am certainly not surprised.


We found out today there will be a baby boy in our family this year. I'm planning to make a quilt just like this one. Thank you, Jan, for the inspiration!!!


That quilt is gorgeous!!! And look at her face!!! She loves it just as much as you do! And I see the beginning of an obsession with fabric being born!!! :)
