One Good Reason to Quilt


In the spirit of Jovali's post about Quilts in Their Native Habitat, here is an almost perfect picture from the today's inbox showing our new friend Baby Roy resting on his quilt.

(The quilt is the one I did the walkthrough on earlier this year.)

erm, but why does the baby have a blanket between him & the quilt?

Oh, so cute! Looks like a little angel. (For the first little while, kids rightly get more attention than quilts.) The quilt is just perfect for a kid -- lots to look at.

Love your post label, "how sweet."

Sweet promises for the future ... a dear photo - thank you.

A precious memory for him and you.

@gl: That's very highly specific question that I just happen to know the answer to. He is in his mom's crafting workroom, and the quilt is giving him padding and insulation from the cool floor. The blanket is, like, his blanket.

@jovali: Yeah, "How sweet. Babies." I am not especially a Baby Person, frankly, so that label should be read with a mock-sarcastic edge. On the other hand, I recognize that babies do eventually turn into toddlers, who are much more fun.

But even ~I~ like this picture... He's just a really sweet-lookin' kid.

Yeah, he's a sweet-looking kid -- when not screaming! But notice how the quilt sets him up so well for dreamland, a place where, say, moose walk upside down.

I posted another pic on my blog, where I'm taking inspiration from you in posting more frequently.

Ooooh... that is tooo precious.

I got to see a picture of the baby on my Electric Company quilt. It makes it so worth while.

Here's the link to margaret's blog -- she's the proud administrative assistant to Baby Roy, of course -- with the other picture:
