This is one of those quilts I so enjoyed making.
It could have been the fact that I knew I loved the colour combination from having done the scrap doll's quilt the other week, so I was excited to see a bigger sized version.
Or it could be that it is for a very special little girl.

Some very dear friends of ours went through extensive fertility treatment for several years and were eventually rewarded with 2 gorgeous twin boys.

Then, as is often the case, less than 6 months later our friend discovered she was pregnant again. Only naturally this time.
Obviously we were all over the moon for them and very excited about the impending arrival.

I don't know if it was just wishful thinking for them, but I had this feeling she was going to have a little girl. After all they had been through, to have a girl this time seemed the perfect addition.

I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting the little bundle in question, as they live in Israel, but we are visiting this summer and I can not wait.

Lovely colours. I'm sure it will be treasured. I'd probably find it quite hard to part with it if I was you
