Baby Quilt - Three Generations

A Baby Quilt finally Gets Finished!

I found a darling machine "woven" baby blanket in a Goodwill Store in Pasadena, California when I was  expecting my 3rd child, my youngest and second daughter.

When this daughter was expecting her first child almost 39 years later, I dug this project out from my UFO pile and decided to finish it. I call this a 3-generational baby blanket but the first generation was not in our family. If someone ever opens up this blanket in the future, they will discover the original tag inside that I left on the blanket.

I have decided I will layer it and embroider around the woven images but also add a few words in an arch across the top.

The layering and embroidery begins.

And finally, we added a baby!
