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!
