Kid, you’ll move mountains!

Often times, I think of a project long before I have the means, way or need to make it. But these ideas stick with me, sometimes they just roll around in my head for a while and sometimes they get lost in one of my notebooks.

But not this one.

My (not-so-little) little cousin and his wife were expecting their first baby, a boy.  For the baby shower, they asked for books instead of cards, with messages inside for the baby.  I thought this was the sweetest idea.

I couldn’t make it to the shower because my family and I were camping.  Don’t be fooled by the goofy faces, my kids were having a blast.  It was the perfect weekend with family and friends.  We played games, visited and ate lots of food!

Even though I couldn’t be there for the baby shower, I still wanted to do something special.  What if I made a little blanket he could lay on while he played?  Or one he could snuggle with while all of these new books are read to him?

I bought the focal fabric weeks before but put it away for fear of messing it up.  One day, I finally decided that this was one gift I needed to make and now.

And not a moment too soon.  Baby Parker arrived just two days after I completed this quilt.  I hope he will enjoy this for years to come.

Congratulations to the new mom and dad on your perfect baby boy!
