Favorite Baby Quilt Revisited
The caller sounded very excited. Her daughter had an all-time favorite baby quilt like the one she found on our website. Her daughter loved it so much that the baby quilt was used as a tablecloth at her wedding reception.
I was intrigued. Must have been a pastel double wedding ring baby quilt, or maybe one of our lovely pastel alphabet quilts.
Now 11 years after the wedding, the daughter was expecting and Mom was so happy to have found another Daisy Duck baby quilt to give to her granddaughter, almost exactly like the one her daughter loved when she grew up!
Daisy Duck, you said??
As a fan of Donald, anyone who loves Daisy is a special friend of mine, and to know this is a Mom who is getting the quilt for a granddaughter because Mom grew up with a similar baby quilt and is expecting any day - well, it just doesn't get better.
I remember when I bought this vintage baby quilt. I picked it up from an estate sale because - well, I love ducks, and I love daisies. There is something quite charming about this design, as well as contemporary about the fabric color choices of pink and lime green. When I added this vintage baby quilt to our inventory, I was imagining this as a quilt wall hanging in a nursery, keeping a baby company in a nursery with walls painted yellow. The walls could also have been purple, or green but in my mind, they were yellow.
I should have asked about the nursery wall colors, I thought to myself with a chuckle as I was carefully folding the quilt.
I packed the Daisy Duck baby quilt in a plastic bag temporarily for safe shipping. No quilts should be kept in plastic for any length of time, they are best stored in cotton, such as pillow cases. I also tucked a yellow duck toy inside to carry the gift tag and quilt care guide to Daisy Duck baby quilt's new home.
The toy also keeps the quilt company on their trip. I mean, honestly, who likes to travel alone?!
What luck that we had the same vintage Daisy Duck baby quilt that matched the first one and is being given to the next generation - love it when that happens!
