We’ve added another baby to our ever growing family! My grand niece, Skylar Jean was born while I was working the AQS in Des Moines, September 29. She could have been my birthday buddy, my birthday is September 28! I had the quilt top done before her birth but I didn’t quilt it because we didn’t know the sex of the baby! I was hoping for a girl (she has two brothers) so I could use some cute floral flannel for the back.
Upon returning home from Des Moines, I got Skylar’s Tummy Time quilt finished, complete with her name, birth date and love, Aunt Linda, stitched into the quilt. I was able to deliver it to her on her one week birthday!
I love making the Rectangle Strings quilt for Tummy Time quilts! They become little “I Spy” strips of novelties and color. Want to make your own? Here’s a link to MaryQuilts where you can find the pattern. I choose to make a 6 x 6 setting with no borders so the quilt measures about 36″ x 54″ and I can use width of fabric for the backing!
Thanks! Linda 🙂
