2-D Zoo Puzzle Piece Quilt

I never really got to take good pics of Owen's quilt, bag, and blocks. Well I take that back, I took them, just not with my camera. I don't know if Brian's dad has had a chance to get them off his camera or not.

Anyway, Owen was born last Sunday - Jan 18, the same day as his Papaw (Brian's Dad) and Colby's b-day, kinda neat! I made a quilt from the 2-D Zoo fabric in Sage for Mike and Becky because they were waiting to find out what the baby was. Well when it was all said in done, the quilt and bag in my opinion actually turned out more "boy-ish", so that worked out! Mike has been posting picks of Owen on a site for everyone to see and as I was looking at it last week, I came across this. A great shot of Owen with his new blankie and bag, leaving the hospital. I would have to say it might be one of my favorite quilts. No trouble at all. I'm glad they will actually use the quilt! I hate when one isn't used and it's stored to "keep". I say USE IT! I can always make another one when it's been drug through the mud for teh last time!

Tracy said...

We probably won't get to meet him until sometime in March when they pass through here for DC if not then, then for Easter when we go for Aiden's (Brian's Godson) Baptism.

and no worried Mandy, you're on the baby quilt makin' list! Just gotta know what and when!

Someone at the farm told me I should start a business in baby quilts and baby things. that would be wonderful, except I couldn't bare to charge someone and I would make no profit!

Aw, adorable! I used to make quilts too. Before I even had kids (now they're 21 and 13 -all 4 of them -2 sets of twins)I made baby quilts in pairs. A little psychic maybe? I'm terrible at watching for the grain of the fabric and such though, so they don't last forever, which is why I stopped making them. :O(
