Sydney Swans Quilt for Baby Zoe Margaret: August 2016

I did think I was going to get to do a baby girl quilt but it turned out her parents were keen Sydney Swans supporters and so it had to be a football quilt in the Swans colours, red and white. I embroidered ten red swans on the white blocks of this quilt. Just stem stitch, nothing fancy. Each swan is slightly different from the others. One of the swan blocks has the baby's given names embroidered on it (see above). Below is a picture of the label, always important for the provenance of any quilt.
 Below is a picture of the whole baby quilt. I hope Zoe sees many football games snuggled up in it!
