Amy Smart, an excellent writer (and popular Guest Mom here on this little blog), made this beautiful lap quilt for my children. It is such a generous (and unexpected) gift that I’m still a little stunned by it. I plan to fold it neatly at the end of Oscar or Betty’s toddler bed — some extra warmth for a cold Colorado winter.

Isn’t it lovely? I’m finding great pleasure in pouring over each individual square and picking out the fabrics that are especially charming.

Thank you, Amy. What a perfectly delightful package to open. Your hands work wonders.

That is so beautiful! I love all the different fabrics. Amy is so awesome and generous. I think she's a pretty wonderful person too! She was on my floor our freshman year at BYU and in the last year we were able to reconnect again. Sweetest girl around!

I absolutely love the quilt. Would she be willing to share the names/sources of any of the fabrics that she used?

It's gorgeous! It's so nice to have something that you know you'll use forever. And can then pass on to your children. I must learn to quilt!

How beautiful! Are those '30s prints? It's very vintage looking. Really lovely.
