Welcome, welcome!

Welcome to our newest addition, little L! H is super happy to be a big brother. L is a month old this week, and we have been adoring every minute of it.

I actually made matching quilts for both little kiddos back in May, during the awesome weekend with Latifah Saafir and the VMQG. We invited her up for 4 days of lectures and workshops, of which I made it to three. I took Rocket 88, which I have adored since I first saw it, and the Glam Clam. I love Latifahs method of piecing clams.

I made this large Rocket 88 quilt for H using a fabulous fat quarter bundle of Neighbourhood from Windham Fabrics. I added the orange from my stash because it’s H’s favorite color.He absolutely loves his quilt!

I finished the Glam Clam top, and then realized it was going to be too big for the baby at first. Then H saw it and claimed it because, again, orange. So I whipped up a mini version of Rocket 88 using a Fat Eighth bundle of Bluebird Park that I had stashed a couple years ago.

We are all very happy and tired, but things are settling into a good routine with home and the baby. It is going to be a great year!
