|Apple Nachos served on the new baby's quilt|
Grandchild Number 11 has tipped the gender count in his family so there are now 5 sons and 4 daughters. He is a little guy, at 6 pounds 2 ounces and only 18.5 inches long, but when a fella is born at 37 weeks, that's to be expected. We know he will catch up in due time and be an important addition to one of the family's favorite sports of kickball in the back yard.
We haven't had opportunity to talk to his mother yet, but his dad has sent me a text or two and all appears to be well with everyone. For all of these blessings we sincerely thank our Lord!
I am not showing my readers a full screen photo of the quilt yet since we won't be giving it to the little guy until we get to see him in person, but I will tell you that the design is a free baby quilt pattern called "Childrens Delight." I think I got it from the Martingale website (a publisher of quilt books and patterns) but I'm not entirely sure. At any rate, the finished size is about 33 inches x 45 inches and it came together very fast with only 5 fabrics and no curves or triangles.
This is the second project that I have had professionally finished on a long arm quilting machine at Holly's Quilt Cabin. I recommend them for their quality work and reasonable prices (plus their shop is a lot of fun to visit!).
