I hadn't seen my brother in law and his wife since my wedding, so a stop to their house in the Springs was a must. They have a son about 6 months younger than Gregory, so I decided to whip up a big-boy bed quilt for him. I had made him a sock monkey themed stroller blanket when he was first born, so it was kind of cool that I "unconsciously" chose a monkey theme for this blanket:
I bound the quilt in a Jennifer Paganelli dot - a perfect basic. I did a new-to-me free motion squiggle design. The quilt measures 54 x 63.
I also made a stop on Ft. Carson to visit one of my first freshman year roommates, Melinda. She has three little ones, so of course, I pulled out my favorite stand-by children's gift: peg bears.You know the fabric obsession runs deep when you seek out local fabric stores when you are traveling. A few places had the whole range of Chicopee and I saw some Out to Sea and Field Study (the three collections calling my name lately!) but I decided to grab things that weren't so readily available online. I am thrilled with the Sarah Jane family tree panel, and I am really tickled to have the other three in the top row- I especially have wanted some of those foxes for forever! The cuckoo clock print is a lot of fun too.
