Tiny Baby Quick Quilt

A tiny baby will likely join the family in the next two weeks. Our former foster daughter has had a difficult pregnancy. The baby isn’t getting enough nutrition through the umbilical cord and is growing very slowly. Both baby and mother are showing signs of distress. So the doctors have given steroid shots and set a goal delivery date.

The baby will probably weigh around 4 pounds.

So tiny.

I had these mini-charm squares, and a few friends, laying around and whipped up a quick top. It is 22″ square, but will cover the little one for quite a while. (Yes, the lighting is terrible. I woke up at 3:30am with a foot cramp and couldn’t get back to sleep so I made this…)

Now I need to find a back and binding and get it finish. Quickly.

ps–I am looking for some good preemie patterns if you have suggestions for a dress.

  1. That really is tiny. I hope and pray that, once born, the baby thrives and gains more quickly, and the mother recovers well, too.

  2. So sweet of you to do this for your foster daughter. I will keep her in my prayers.
    I have made a few preemie dresses. Using baby doll dress patterns is the best… I forget what size dolls they are… but if you have like Cabbage patch preemie patterns or of course just small baby doll patterns. No matter what you make it most likely will be bigger than you want.

  3. Praying for mom and baby. Mine was born 5 weeks early weighing 4 lbs 6 oz. He was in the NICU for 6 days. He’s now a big, healthy 25 year old. Hope all goes well.
