Nolan's Baby Quilt

So much has been going on in my life this year that quilty goals and blog-writing keep getting pushed to the bottom of the "to do" list. There's no way to make up for lost time, but it's never too late to start again, so here I am.  I've been making the quilty part a priority  lately. Now it's time to blog about it.

A brand new great-nephew appeared on the scene in January. Knowing that bears were part of the nursery theme I chose to make a bear paw quilt in nursery colors as his "being born" gift.  I took one of the sheets to my LQS to find the perfect fabrics.

Any pattern with half-square-triangles goes together quickly, and these blocks did just that.

 Hand quilting always makes a quilt extra special.  

Scrappy binding.....

.....leftover blocks on the back.....

.....Baby's name embroidered as a label.....

.....and done!  Don't you love watching people's faces when you gift a quilt?  

Mommy loved it.  Nolan seemed especially pleased with his new sunglasses from Aunt Sandy, too.

I believe he was looking ahead to all the future snuggling time with his new quilt.

This is Nolan a few months later enjoying his quilt and even dressing to match.  He's quite a guy!

In the days ahead I hope to show you at least a little of what I've been up to lately.  I haven't been a total slug!
