so sweet

Some time ago, well ages ago actually, we were all busy making candlewick baby quilts.  Delightful old- fashioned quilts, using lots & lots of french knots. My first candlewick quilt was sent over to England for my cousin's first baby & I also still have several finished blocks that I never got around to putting together into another wee quilt.
Glenys too had finished blocks that she hadn't done anything with either ...........until now!!!




.......they are all now put together, with complimentary solid sashings and a pretty print for the borders.  And this wonderful antique looking quilt will add a very special touch to any nursery I am sure!
