Skylar’s Tummy Time Quilt!

Skylar’s Tummy Time Quilt!

Wrapped and ready for Skylar Jean

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.Swirly Flowers quilting

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!Skylar JeanOne week old Skylar

Isn’t she adorable!?  If you look closely, you can see where I stitched out her name.

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 🙂
