A Quilt, Baby & Me

I thought I was the baby in this family, but I heard Mom and Dad talking about a new baby girl that’s coming in just a few weeks and is going to live in a place called San Francisco. That’s where my hu-sis lives (that would be Mom and Dad’s daughter) with her husband. So, Mom has been busy making a quilt for the baby’s room. She was in her sewing room a lot, which sorta took some time out from ball-playing, but that’s OK. I got to sleep some more.
Mom here: I saw a picture of a quilt similar to this and had to design one using my daughter’s color scheme.  I made 1/4 inch bias strips using a Clover bias tape maker. After ironing the strips to the background, I applique-stitched around all the pieces;and finished the quilt with some simple echo quilting around the rectangles and squares and free-motioned stars on the borders.

Gee, that was really neat, Mom, but now you got the suitcases out–maybe I can stow away in one. No? I can’t go? I guess that means I’m going to jail my favorite indoor dog park, Fido’s. I was pretty sad, but I heard things are getting even worse. When this little girl is born, Mom is leaving me for a whole month and Dad will be in charge. But Mom said we can talk on Skype! Maybe it won’t be so bad after all…..Powered by Linky Tools
