For anyone who knows Miriam, either personally, or via this blog, it will come as no surprise that as soon as we learned that Heather was pregnant, she resolved to make a quilt for the new baby - and we knew it would be a girl.
A couple of years ago, before she was even married, Heather had brought over an afghan she had been crocheting to ask a little advice of Miriam, and it involved creating a border for a piece made of hexagons, a shape Heather liked. Miriam remembered this and incorporated that shape into the quilt she made for Lily.
No doubt a charge of bias could be levelled against me, but I think Miriam did a remarkable job, and created a work of great beauty, with precision and attention to detail that is second to none.
Heather was thrilled. But best of all Lily liked it too!
We hope that she will enjoy it as much as she appears to be doing here for many years to come.
The term "Labour of Love" may be a little overworked; this quilt truly was!
