For Jessica ... or is it Jessika?

I sewed up this little quilt not long ago for one of my nieces. Jessica has just turned one. While it was intended as her birth gift, I figure she wouldn't have appreciated it much earlier ... would she?!

I have used my 'go-to' baby quilt, the smaller quilt in my 'Abracadabra' pattern, simply because it can be made up so quickly. I have used an assortment of Aneela Hoey fabrics with some Denyse Schmidt prints, and an Amy Butler dot.

Jessica's big sister Kate also has a version of this quilt, so now they can snuggle together wrapped in love from Aunty Ros. 

Their mother, on unwrapping Jessica's gift, looked at me straight, in all seriousness and gasped, "You realise it's Jessika with a 'k'?" I momentarily died a thousand deaths until I caught the cheeky glint in her eye. Naughty!!


  1. What a beautiful quilt! I had a heart attack just reading your story, lol! So glad it was a joke. ;-)

  2. I can only imagine how you felt when your sister played the joke on you. I hope you are scheming revenge....with interest...... "JessiCa" is sure to love her new quilt.

  3. What a lovely quilt whit name on. Have a good day. Carina from Sweden.

  4. Gorgeous quilt Ros. Spelling is always a danger with baby names these days, I'm glad it was a joke.

  5. Ha, that's a good one. Sadly the fad of giving babies normal names with ridiculous spellings has not yet died. I feel sorry for those kids having to spell out their names for the rest of their lives.
    Lovely choice of prints - plenty of opportunity for eye-spy when Jysikka grows a little older.

  6. Oh dear! I hope you've got a good prank ready to get her back! The quilt is lovely. Kx.

  7. what a sweet quilt and what funny prank!

  8. What a sweet quilt. Little Jessica is a lucky girl. Those little pranks keep us on our toes;)
    Happy Days,
