Irem Label

This quilt finally found a home and what a lucky home. I tagged along on Amy's trip to Turkey in April and our travels were made much easier by her friend from Ankara (capital of Turkey). He provided us lots of great advice and a wonderful list of vocab including pronunciation. I was lucky enough to meet him this weekend as he's in CA on business. His daughter was born just a few months ago and there was just enough time this weekend to stitch up a little label. Her name is Irem and the meaning is Heaven's Garden. She's a darling little girl and I hope she likes this fun little quilt.

Now I'm encouraged to keep a couple of small quilts on hand all the time. They are quick and fun and eventually find just the right baby for a snuggle.
