Baby Quilt by Maru!

Yesterday I received a very special baby present in the mail from my good friend Mary (aka Maru). She is an amazing quilter and all around crafty type and you can see some of her work on her blog

When Mary heard I was pregnant she contacted me about doing a custom baby quilt. I was over the moon about this! We talked briefly about what colors and styles I liked and she sent me sketches of the whole process and later photographs.

Well the quilt arrived yesterday and I have to say that it is absolutely breathtaking! It is such an honor to have hand made gift of this quality from someone who is dear to me, I know it will be treasured forever.

Doesn't it look so pretty on Echo's crib?
I am already having to fight to keep the cats off of it, they want to claim it as their own :-) I can't wait for little Echo to get here (6 more weeks!), I will definitely be photographing her with this as a backdrop.  Words can't express how grateful and touched I am by this special gift, thanks so much Mary!
