Graham and I just picked up Bekah's baby quilt from Kingsland on Tuesday and I am so pleased with the way it turned out. I hope (and believe) that Bekah will enjoy wrapping little Sean Patrick in it on those cold Pennsylvania nights this winter. While I was waiting to get the quilt back I decided to make a cover for a little baby pillow to go with the quilt. I had one quilt square left over and it was the perfect size for an over-sized pocket on the pillow. While I placed a diaper in the pocket, it will be useful for just about anything Bekah wants to put in it.
It has a double closure in the back so that it can be easily removed and laundered.
The quilt is a crib size - a little larger than I usually make. But Pennsylvania nights are colder than the ones we have in Texas!
I came across the baby pillow pattern several months ago and have made this for new parents when I didn't have time to do a quilt. I think it's a quite unique item for the nursery. Here are some I have made and given.
This one went to my niece Tiffany for her little boy, Richard Wyman. There was also a quilt with this in the Winnie the Pooh fabric.
My nephew Rich and his wife recently welcomed their second son, Wyatt, and this Winnie the Pooh pillow fits into their nursery.
Our friend from Romania, Razvan, and his wife had their first child, a baby boy, in June. I slipped a burp cloth into the pocket!
When a quilt just can't be made in time for a baby's arrival, this sweet little pillow nicely fits the bill!
