A Quilt for Grant

GrantQuilt

This is the quilt I made for our beautiful new grandson. Erin saw a picture of this quilt on Pinterest and asked me to make it for the baby. She did a great job picking the colours.

Jabin’s Quilt

Recently my cousin became a Grandmother for the first time.  I was inspired to make this quilt for her beautiful new grandson Jabin.

Welcome baby Cleo Isla Paige

Cleo

Over a period of 3 months this summer, amongst friends and family, we had 5 beautiful babies born. Although this was the first quilt I made, it was the last one to go to its new home.  I made this one for our Niece’s first baby.  We didn’t know the gender and Mom wanted a marine/ocean themed gender neutral quilt using blues and greys.  I found this pattern (Preppy the Whale by Elizabeth Hartman) and instantly fell in love with it.  It is just perfect for a marine themed baby quilt.  I didn’t know when I made it that Dad’s favourite colour was orange.

A member of our walking group saw me working on Cleo’s Preppy quilt and asked me to make one just like it for a close friend who was expecting a baby girl.

Baby James Andrew

On July 9th we welcomed James Andrew into our extended family.  He joins his big sister Leah.  This was the 4th baby quilt I made this summer.  It is a little unique because it is two sided.  Instead of having a plain backing, it has another quilt top on the back giving the family two options.  This is the front:

Welcome to the World Chloe

On Sunday our friend’s daughter had a beautiful little girl that they named Chloe May.  I love the name, it’s so pretty and feminine.  They now have a Grandson and a Granddaughter.    Unfortunately, in my haste to get the quilt to it’s new home I forgot to take a picture of the completed quilt.  I have this picture of the pieced top hanging on my design wall before it was sandwiched and quilted.  The free motion quilting just added more dimension and texture to the design:

Proud Grandma sent me a picture of the quilt showing some of the longarm work.

We are Grandparents!!!

We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our first grand child.  We travelled to their home town on July 5th, two days before the official due date.   Unfortunately the baby decided that it didn’t want to make an appearance on the scheduled date.  As each day went by we got more and more nervous that it wouldn’t be born before our scheduled departure date of July 15th.  I guess the baby decided that it was worth meeting us after all.  Cameron James was born at 4:45am on Thursday, July 14th.  He was 7lbs 12 ounces and 20.5 inches long.  Mom, Dad and Cameron are all doing well and adjusting to life as a family.

Here is a picture of Cameron before they even weighed/measured him.
