I have been with her (online) though some of her life's Journey as they moved to Philadelphia and then to Charlotte, as well as some personal struggles with secondary Infertility.
I was also told (before facebook) of their Pregnancy!!
That day I had gone to a quilt show and had bough an adorable charm pack. As we were talking and planning I asked about room colours (they are Not finding out the gender) and realized this would be PERFECT for a baby quilt for her.
So I started with circles since I know they appeal to Kendra. A charm pack fits a CD very nicely.
I traced and hand cut them all.
I took a background square and folded it in half and took a folded circle and folded that in half to find the middle. I then eyeballed it to find the center.
Pinned and sewed.
I did a zig zag stitch on it and that was a mistake. I should have stitched just inside the circle or fused them on or something.
Her getting pregnant kicked my but a bit to get my quilting room cleaned up and useable.
(yep - worked on this one since Jan)
I like how it came out of the washing machine.
After washing and drying I realized that some of the circles had pulled back from the stitches.
I spent some time whip stitching them back down. I hope they stay and dont come apart later!
I even added hand quilting to the inside of each circle to help hold things down.
I picked the grey to match the elephants- pretty good eh?
I love how the circles showed up on the back!
started Feb 4th. Finished March 11.
AND then it waited!
We had such a hard time getting together!
Finally on May 18th we met up at Five Guys Burgers and Fries and were able to see each other and I could give her her quilt!
I am so super excited for you Kendra, Eric and Sadie!
Fergus- You have a great family to be born into!
