It's made for a new little girl born in sunny Burbank, California. It's loaded with a good dose of Canadiana for its new Canadian-American owner. A girl's got to know her roots, eh? :)
I've made many of these Wee Spy quilts over the last seven years, but each is unique just like the baby for whom it's intended. 48 different novelty fabrics in 6" squares arranged randomly, surrounded by a 3" border that coordinates with the backing.
I make the Wee Spy quilts gender neutral so they can be passed down or around, but sometimes I'll include a few fabrics geared towards the family (ie. boats for a family that enjoys sailing, music notes/instruments when I know the dad is a musician, etc.). This quilt has some Canada fireworks, hockey equipment, Christmas moose, and plenty of maple leafs...and an American flag. :)
They measure ~ 40" by 50" and come with their own matching travel bag, which doubles as a mini I Spy.
I'm told that the proud parents of the new arrival are very pleased with this gift. Woo hoo! :D
Linking up with Nat @ Made in Home for this week's TGIFF! party.
Happy Friday, all!
