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.
.....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!
