It's a Girl!

I have made a quilt for every niece and nephew for the last 25 years..... so when Victoria (Tori) Rae Adams came into this world in September.... it was not at all a question as to whether I was making her a quilt or not... it was just a question as to what I was going to do......

Work was crazy busy this fall!  I had a hard time wrapping my head around what I wanted to make for this bundle of joy.

Then... while digging through the clearance bins and JoAnns on a 50% off already clearance day,  I found a bolt  this fabric.....  there was enough for borders.   At the price of $1.50 a yard.... I bought it.  Thinking I would use something different on the back.    But a trip to a second JoAnn's later that same weekend... I found another piece... which had just the right amount for a back!  

I usually try to avoid "infant" looking prints when making baby quilts... but this was such a cute print..... and the proud parents were super happy to be adding a baby girl to their family..... big brother Liam is now 4.   I had plenty of the right coordinating colors to do something in the center....

And I decided to keep it really simple!   Large 4 patch blocks..... but it looks so sweet and girlie.....  I also like the serpentine stitch for baby quilts... I know it catches all the seam allowances, making it very sturdy and washer friendly.
