The night before the baby shower, I finished up this quilt. I am thrilled with how it turned out. I did the piecing of the front and back while on vacation in Maine. It turns out vacation is a great time for quilting! For a girl who loves the process but doesn't ever have time to devote to it, the hassle of packing up my sewing machine and remembering everything was well worth it. It certainly helps that my husband is such a proponent of my love for quilting. He was determined to let me spend some time doing what I love. He watched the baby while I zipped through the front and back. I am glad he convinced me to group the colors together - I like the way this turned out.
With each stitch, we prayed for your son. We prayed for his future, the man he will someday become, and for the family he will someday have. May he find comfort under the quilt, play happily on top of the quilt, and drag it around for years to come. We love you.
