Peter Rabbit Baby Quilt

Greetings and welcome to "The Quilting Mouse" a joint endeavor between my mum and I to showcase some of her growing quilt collection. We hope you enjoy the creativity, effort, and care taken to create each of these beautiful textiles.

A little bit about our opening photo - Peter Rabbit Baby Quilt. The last time I was home for any length of time was back in 2006. I had a chance to catch up with friends and family as well as being 'Mother's little helper.' (Its a pity the shirt from childhood still doesn't fit.) While catching up with a high school buddy Mike and his growing family, I learned they were expecting another bouncing baby. As a present to celebrate their addition, my mom and I agreed to put together a little baby quilt. Mom had seen the Peter Rabbit fabrics and pattern at one of the local quilting shops so together we redesigned the layout and colors to reflect either a girl or a boy.

As a footnote, Mike, Heather, and Declan welcomed baby Keldon in February 2007.
