Confetti Quilt for Jimmy

It has been some time since my last posting, as my I went into preterm labor and delivered my son 10 weeks early in September.  These past weeks have been quite busy with no time to quilt, but he is finally home!  We are now getting our rhythm down, and today is the first time in a couple of months that I have used my sewing machine for quilting.  The past few hours have been very productive!  I am looking forward to next month, when I will be able to do a lot more quilting — in between feedings, diaper changes, and snuggle time with my son!  Here is a picture of Little Jimmy on his quilt that his Grandma made for him:

Back in February, I finished my Confetti Quilt.  I was on a roll creating many baby blankets earlier in the year.  I loved my Confetti Quilt so much that I kept it for my future baby — which at that time, I wasn’t expecting.

In the NICU, the isolettes are covered with blankets and quilts from Project Linus and local church organizations.  When I saw the blankets and quilts, I knew the perfect quilt that I could bring in for Jimmy’s isolette.  The Confetti Quilt was used for his isolette and then used to cover his mattress when he graduated to a crib.  Now that the Little Man is home, his quilt will get a lot more use with tummy time!

I am sharing this post in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy’s Creative Side.  Click on the button below to view the festival of quilts.  It is only the first day and there are already over 200 quilts on display!
