Making Noah's Ark Baby Quilt "Girlie"
This brand new, imported Noah's Ark Baby Quilt has been a favorite baby shower gift for several years. From the Williamsburg, Va. historic collection, the design is based on a German applique quilt in their museum collection.
Now our customers have selected this baby quilt as a gift for boys until now. The customer wanted me to make the quilt "girlie" by adding a baby girl's name and birth date. After looking at several options, I chose a complimentary burgundy thread and Diane Script in the space between the birds on top and the top of the ark.
I also added a bear I thought a little girl would like, a huggable honey-colored bear all set for winter with a dark red scarf. The free gift toy delivers the free quilt care guide and gift tag.
To make sure the bear was all set for her trip, the toy was carefully tucked into the baby quilt before I tucked it into a temporary plastic bag for the trip to their new home.
Welcome to the world, Peyton Lee!
PS Customer emailed me she was very happy with the personalized baby quilt, it was bigger than she expected. The shipping box, however, was opened and re-taped by the post office.That's why we ship our quilts in temporary plastic bags to keep them dry and clean during shipping.
