And another sweet baby quilt is ready for quilting. This one I will hand quilt because the momma who will receive it, isn't due for another 6 weeks so I have plenty of time.
I found this pattern on Moda Bake Shop here. It is entitled "On the Go." It was a fairly easy quilt block pattern, until I put it up on the wall to take a picture of it and realized some of the squares were in backwards. A quick trip back to the sewing machine and they were all fixed. My children were hollering in the background to "just leave it be momma." I just couldn't though - it had to be just right.
The fabric was not from any particular grouping, but rather a random combination from Joanns, our local fabric store, my stash and my favorite Kona Cotton in white. I think it turned out so adorable!
The momma to be is having her eighth child, another son, and she is my age. How I long to have another baby of my own, but it is not apparently in God's plan for my life. So for the time being while I don't get to hold one more of my own, I will rejoice in holding the precious gifts of others.
Stay tuned for the reveal of Abby's beautiful quilt for her room.
