Last month my brother and his wife were blessed with their second daughter - Jenna Lynn. I love her name! And I so wish I could hold her in my arms but that's not going to happen soon since they live across the country from me.
I asked my s-i-l if she would like a quilt for Jenna and she said she did. Yeah!! (Have I ever mentioned that I have very talented sisters and s-i-l's who make their own quilts already.) Last summer when they were out visiting, we were talking about quilting, scrap buckets etc. and Linnet said, "I'd love a quilt from your scrap bucket," insinuating that she liked my scraps (or maybe that I have way to many?.. not sure.)
So that's what I did. I picked through my scrap bucket to come up with a colour scheme for a girl that didn't include pink or purple. That wasn't a request, just a challenge for myself.
I used my friend Rebecca's Baby Go to cut out the tumblers so the cutting was easy and the piecing was easy too. It was a fun quilt to make. The backing is a leftover piece of a sheet that I had used to back another quilt. And the binding was not a scrap but a recent purchase.
My favourite part. Do you see her name in the quilting?
I can't wait to see this little girl in real. But I'll settle for a photo of her under or on the quilt. :-) For now.
