Did I mention that there’s been a bonanza of babies amongst our close friend & family? My cousin, Tom, and his wife, Laura, are having a little boy in April and we recently celebrated with a baby shower. Since I’m on a baby quilt roll I kept on sewing until I had another quilt under my belt.
Apparently the baby name has been shared with some of Laura’s family & friends, but Tom wants the name to be a surprise for his side of the family. Since I’m Tom’s cousin I still don’t know the name. I did notice that a few of the baby gifts from Laura’s friends were for PBL… so time will tell if I’m picking up on the right things or reading into things that aren’t there.
I was still in love with the stripy quilt I made for Myla and wanted to continue honing the pattern. I made the strips run vertically for this quilt and liked that there were more interlocking points.
For this quilt I echoed the triangles by quilting lines 1” apart radiating out from the smallest triangle at the top of the quit.
The dense quilting made for a fun pattern on the back as well, and I loved how it contrasted against the polka dot fabric.
I keep saying that the last quilt I’ve finished is my favorite. And while I haver another (!) baby quilt in progress, this is my most recent completion so it still ranks as my current favorite.
Baby Lindenmeyer was born on April 7 and I was completely wrong about the initials. His name is Boggio Mac. Bo for short, and Mac in honor of my grandfather. I’m so excited for Tom & Laura.
