(not exactly my first start to finish project of the year though, since i was quilting and binding on new year's eve and then sewed all the binding on the next day)
with lisa's baby boy number three nearing his due date, i had to kick it in to gear to figure out what to make for the little fella. since the broncos are kind of a big deal in that house i wanted to come up with something inspired by the team colors but not in your face football. i looked through some of our texts of pictures sent back and forth and remembered one from when i made the charm and 10 quilt for baby a. there was another one i had considered for it, and i remember commenting about that pattern herself.
but really. aren't those little forest friends adorable??
it is always fun to make baby quilts for people, but especially fun for someone you know AND has been in your life since the day you were born. though on completeing this quilt, i realize i've made one for each of lisa's boys, but lorelai got the short end of the stick by being born before my quilting game really started. maybe if she's nice to me, i'll consider doing something for her 10th birthday next year. maybe i'll even invite her to have some junior quilter input ;)
welcome to the world, baby jace! can't wait to meet the little nugget in hopefully a few months.
yep, you guessed it... the idea of a colorado visit is calling my name for spring break again.
