Last Sunday my new nephew was born! I’m so very excited! I live over 800 miles away from my family, so when a new baby is born I have to wait until our Christmas or summer vacation to see the new addition. But, a few years ago we were lucky enough to have my husband’s brother and his family move in to our neighborhood. And since then, we have welcomed two new nephews!
The newest addition surprised us all by coming a month early, which meant I had to do some speedy sewing to get his little quilt finished.
I used two charm packs from the ‘Ten Little Things” line. The fabric is so bright and colorful, I decided to keep the pattern simple and just sew the squares together.
I thought big loopy quilting went best with the fabrics. It’s fun and playful.
And of course, I had to go with the striped binding…..
Since we are a household of many girls, my only son is thrilled to welcome another boy cousin into the family!
