Widgets Special Quilt

Today I finished Widgets Special Quilt
made from favourite clothes worn in his first year....



His little first size bootie shoes
(a pattern my Granny used, and my Mom, and these were made by me..)

Pockets from Thomas Tank shorts to hold treasures....

Little Knotted Top Beanie.....

little incy wincy socks...

"I love my Mummy"

tiny treasure pocket.....

This quilt is his only.......

A collar from a size 0000 onesie....
and a favourite T shirt!

"Stitched with Love by Nana 2010"
{Very unclear picture}

Widget seems to like it.....
Great for wrapping up on cold days....

Great for just chillin' on ......

Now to get the clothes from his UK cousins so I can do theirs......

How wonderful and special! I wasn't a quilter back when my son was little and now have none of his baby clothing. You had a great idea for a keepsake, looks like he loves it! :)
