Granny Squares

I’m excited to have finished my first quilt since Rowan has been home! It feels AMAZING to be back to playing with fabrics & quilting. Turns out Rowan is quite a good helper!

I started this beauty while I was pregnant, for the oh so talented lady that made our gorgeous baby shower cake & cupcakes! I was thrilled when we were able to work out a trade, cake for quilt! I love being able to spread the quilt love & see other’s awesome talents, that I wouldn’t dare attempt.

For the quilting I used one of my new pantographs, Diamonds are Forever, and I think it turned out to be a perfect fit!
Now that I’m feeling completely rejuvenated…on to the next project!
What are you guys working on these days?

Hello world!

2 Months Old

It’s hard to believe this nugget is 2 months old already! I seriously don’t know where the time has gone. Well, half of it went to a month of hospital stays. Our baby girl is just growing up WAY too fast!

Rowan is 10lbs 5oz and 22.05″ long. She is the happiest baby I know. She is quite the smiley pants and has started to have conversations with us. I adore every time she wakes up to eat, that when I come over to her bassinet to pick her up she gives me the biggest smile, like she’s happy to see me. She has the biggest blue eyes, just like her daddy, & a cowlick to match too. Her daddy & I just can’t get enough of this cute face on a daily basis!

She loves reading, her Bella dog, stroller strides with mom, watching car videos with dad, helping mom quilt & sew while hanging out in her mamaroo, her wubba nub, getting dressed up (not really, but I like to think so), & eating…of course.

We’ve been home a month now, from the hospital, and her breathing has been doing great! She has been holding her O2 saturation fantastically & we are hoping to be able to take her completely off of her SpO2 monitor, by next month. As we all hoped, it seems that she truly did just need some extra time to recover from her initial meconium aspiration. It’s really been a weight off of our shoulders knowing that she has improved so much!

First finish of 2014!

I really finished Arianna’s quilt in January, but I am just now getting around to taking pictures of it before I send it off tomorrow. It’s about time, I’m a little embarrassed, I started making her quilt last year as a gift…she’s only 9 months old now! Hopefully she won’t mind too much!

I’ve known her mama, Lindsey, for years & it’s hard to believe we both have little girls now. Where has the time gone?

Arianna’s nursery has lots of beautiful purples and greens, just as her quilt does. I used some of my favorite fabrics from my stash and quilted it with my swirly turbulence pantograph.
