Quilt #16: Lucky Lachlan

I have officially written posts about all of the quilts I made my first year as a quilter, in 2013. It only took me 5 years! Now, let's move on to 2014!

One of the most sentimental quilts I ever made in 2013, and ever, is the Irish Chain memory quilt I made for my Gramma. It hung on the wall of her apartment for the last few months of her life, and was wrapped around her when she passed. 

Gramma loved babies. In the last months of her life, she lived in Wisconsin, near my cousin Kaila. One of the last highlights of Gramma's life is getting to meet her new great-grandchild, Lachlan. It was only fitting that I made Lucky Lachlan a quilt out of the scraps of gramma's quilt. 

I used their first picture together on the label. 

I still can't believe Gramma is gone and that sweet baby in the picture is already 4!
