Grandma’s Quilt

My mom made this beautiful quilt for Little Jimmy.  We found the fabric in Florida at The Quilt Place in Rockledge, FL.  It is Playday by SEI for Robert Kaufman.  The fabric was sold in a kit for the free pattern, Hip Baby.  My mom made it bigger by adding an extra border.  I completed all of the quilting, echoing the various various elephants and giraffes, as well as adding spirals and other fun designs.  It is adorable and Jimmy loves his Grandma Quilt.  Thanks Mom!!


By the way, check out yesterday’s post for some big news!  Baby Number 2 is on the way…

Here are my link ups this week:

Big News

Big News – Jim and I are expecting baby number two in early May!  Little Jimmy will be a big brother.  We could not be more excited, as we prepare for the new addition to our family.  Boy or girl, we won’t find out the gender until the birthday.  Until then, we have a few months for the quilt room transformation to Jimmy’s bedroom to occur.

Also, I am back to sewing after a two month break.  I traded in my “sewing time” for “nap time” or “go to bed early time”.  My energy levels are finally picking up and my entire Saturday was dedicated to quilting.  My sewing machine was happy for my return and was humming along yesterday!

As for another exciting piece of news in our household, Jimmy is now wearing glasses!  He has been in awe of everything now that he can see!  Here is a picture of him sporting his new style.  He is hanging out on the quilt that his Grandma (my mom) made for him.  I took full quilt shots of this quilt and I will share later this week 🙂
