Every baby deserves their own....

Remember the challenge quilt?  When my second daughter saw it she thought it was perfect for her friends baby.  He's a year old and cute as a button.  He even has his own FB page.  I told her sure, get me her address and I will send it off.  Then I had second thoughts.  I didn't want to send it anywhere. I wanted to keep it. I wanted to hang it in the sewing room and see it everyday.  I had also written all over the backing in Pigma Pen...which doesn't come out...  So....what to do?  Make him his own quilt.  Somewhere on a blog I saw a quilt made with solid jelly roll strips and white... I loved it...and remembered it...but of course now I can't find it.  So out came the Kona Solid jelly roll and I pulled some blues and purples...10 colored strips and 9 white strips later and this is what we have...


The photo I saw was turned the other way....

And I couldn't stop....I hand embroidered his name...

I think every baby deserves his own quilt...certainly this little boy does...

I love this, Nancy. I'm thinking I might do an orange-and-blue for my son (Go, Illini!). This would make a great quilt-as-you-go project, too, I bet, if you wanted to back it in flannel.

Thanks for sharing!

It looks so adorable Nancy, and yes...everyone deserves a quilt to call their own.

What a great idea. I know someone having a girl soon and this would be a perfect girl quilt too.
I wouldn't give away the challenge quilt either.
