Another baby on her way - another heirloom quilt to make

Three years ago I gathered together some of the old family linens and made an Heirloom quilt for my grandson.  Now my daughter is pregnant again, and this time I am using the more colourful pieces of emboridered linens.  I made a start on the quilt this Christmas holidays.

The sampler in the center was embroidered by my great grandmother, who was born in 1860 so would be the new baby's great great great grandmother.  At the moment her name is tiny tiny, due in May.  It is wonderful to be making something for this new little addition to our family.
