Tiny quilts for tiny babies

My husband and I know a couple whose twins were recently delivered prematurely at 28 weeks gestation.  These amazing, tiny babies are fighters and they're growing stronger every day!

Since these babies will be staying in the NICU for a while, I decided they might need some colorful quilts to brighten their surroundings.

This one's for the baby boy, Tuller -

and back-

Tuller's quilt is made mostly with Moda's Make Life fabric.  I added Michael Miller's Groovy Guitars to the back because Tuller's daddy is a musician.


And this quilt is for Ada, the baby girl -

and back

Ada's quilt is made with Tula Pink's Plume fabric, and a tiny piece of Groovy Guitars on the back for fun.

Both quilts measure approximately 28" x 31".  My hope is that they will bring a bit of cheer to this new family of four!

Please lift up a prayer for these tiny babies, that they will grow big and strong, and for their parents, that they will have strength and peace and hope during this trying time.  If you would like to follow their story, they're blogging about their journey here.

  4. Those are both beautiful quilts and very thoughtful gifts! My daughter was premature, though not quite as early as these babies, but I remember just how unprepared I was at the hospital. I didn't have a single thing packed and had to actually borrow a phone charger to charge my cell to be able to call everyone and let them know I was having a baby that day. I'm sure these quilts will be very loved by these sweet babies.

  11. Beautiful!!!! The guitars are so perfect!!!! I hope Justin and Angela love them!

    PS... I made the mistake of reading their blog from work last week and I ended up crying at my desk and a co-worker walked in and didn't seem to know what to do... of course a construction guy doesn't want to deal with a hormonal, crying, pregnant lady ;)

  17. Hi Mary!

    I just found you via Flickr- you signed me up as a contact, and I am now your "follower" :-) Thanks for your comments on my quilts! Had to come browse some of yours- beautiful work! I am currently donating a few quilts to a charity in my city called Quilting for Babes, which are for wee ones in the NICU to brighten their days there. I am sure these quilts will do the same for Ada and Tuller! If you want to see my blog about QFB, I am at www.ocd-obsessivecraftingdisorder.blogspot.com Have a great day!

  21. Hi Mary! Someone pointed me to your blog today after we made almost matching quilts! :) Great southern minds must think alike- I'm in SC as well (and was actually just in Holden Beach right above you last week!) Just wanted to pop in and say hi- I'm following you now!
    BTW, here's the quilt that I made that someone said reminded me of yours:
