I made this quilt for my friends Mary Sidney and Harold when their long awaited baby, Ellie, was born in June. I hand pieced and hand quilted it.
Because Harold spent a lot of his growing up time in Asia and because Ellie's parents like to travel, I put a map of the world on the back of the quilt.
After they got the quilt, however, it appeared that Mary Sidney and Harold liked the back more than the top. Here is a picture of baby Ellie resting on top of the world.
