My lovely mother came out and spent just over a week with me in early December. We managed to get a “baby” quilt done during the course of the visit. It is a bit bigger than a real baby quilt (56″ x 56″), so I feel like it was a great accomplishment. This quilt is for the 3rd grandchild of one of my mother’s good friends. My mom has made a quilt for each of the previous grand-babies, and it just seemed like a wonderful excuse for a visit and some quilting! Why not, right?
Here are the blocks for the main portion of the quilt all laid out and beginning to be put together. We made a few extra, and although the light block at the bottom was one of our favorites, it just did not fit in with the overall pattern. (I’ll turn the extra 2 blocks into a hot pad later.)
And, yes, we got it completely finished in a week! Here are the quilting buddies with the (just) finished quilt. Note the JA103 turbojet engine sneaking into the frame on the lower right. :o)
Once we got it all washed up, here is a closer look at the quilting detail, backing and binding. It’s cute and I hope the family and new baby enjoy it!
