Blessed are the children and the mothers who give them life.
I made this for a friend's recent baby girl's birth. I wanted something special for both the mother and the new life. I came up with this heart shaped Blessing Quilt with hand embroidered Blessings.
I had never seen or heard of a blessing blanket or quilt before but I wanted to do something special.
