Quick present for a special boy

Saturday morning 9:15, Buying fruit on the market, I got a nephew is born and his name is Coen. HELP, I didn't start to make his quilt and no time to buy him a present

 9.35 at the shop: Son X had to choose the fabrics for a little quilt. He decided: BLUE, that is for boys.... 
 10.00 at the shop (we had quiltcafé, my other project stays in my bag....) the squares are cut...
 14.00 at the shop: The first squares are sewed...
 Sunday morning: Top is finished and immediately sandwiched. Before bedtime the machinequilting was done....
 Monday morning 9.00. Ready!
 I wrapped it with a ribbon I bought 6 years ago (and never used) during a trip to Orlando. I was pregnant at that time and in the mood for ribbons like this with: Baby's first, written on it
And last friday  I bought this nice tin for whatever you like...I already bought this tin last year, but is was sale and you never know. Now it was the perfect box for a Easter baby. ( I put a fabric with easter eggs on the back of the quilt)

Monday morning 11.30: Hello Coen, Welcome in our family
Every time you see a baby it is a miracle, those little fingers etc etc.
And I am happy that I could give him his own quilt!

So, that was my weekend!

Veel quiltplezier,

  1. Wat een leuke baby quilt! Mijn weekend was gevuld met eten ipv quilten. Ook leuk, maar nu eens aan de slag met deel 6 van de mystery. Die ligt al het hele weekend te lonken...
