I love you Jordyn. Love Sarah

When I was a little girl first learning how to write/spell, I left my parents and sister about 1,000 notes per day that said something along the lines of "I love you mom (dad, Amy).  Love Sarah".  It was all I knew how to write, so I worked at it until I had it down!

I tell you that to let you know why, when I'm about to show you another quilt that I made, it looks pretty much like this one.  And this one.

When I learn something new, I wear it out until I'm ready to learn something else!

Troy's cousin is pregnant with her first child, a little girl they're going to name Jordyn.  Her baby shower was on Sunday (it was full of Cinnabon and cupcakes.  A real temptation for someone who wasn't eating wheat!), and I made a baby quilt as my gift.  I also contributed Jack's new favorite book that has become the birthday and shower staple gift from me.



And before my friend Mary can make a snide comment, yes, I am 1,000 feet tall.
I am not a girly girl, so even though I knew Jordyn's  nursery was going to be super pink, I just couldn't bring myself to do an entirely pink quilt.  The back of the quilt is a light pink, but I included some blues and greens on the front.

The fabric of course was washable.  The mom of a GERD baby tends to be practical in her gift giving.  This one was a lot easier than the king quilt I made recently.  I hope it is something that will be well loved by both the new parents and new baby in just a few short months!

I love you Jordyn.
Love Aunt Sarah

  2. That is a very pretty quilt! So, your husband must be tall, too? My son is 6' tall and married a girl that must be one or two inches taller than he is. She is nice, and that is what counts. You seem nice!
