I learned how to sew and handquilt when Riley was two years old. I enjoyed it so much that I purposed to handquilt a baby quilt for each of our children. I have loved having a project to work on during the late months of pregnancy when a gal should have her feet up and be relaxing.
This handmade quilt was started in the middle of July. I figured I had one month to finish it. Around 1pm on August 4th, Silas' birthday, I finished it! It was washed and dried and ready to encompass him by the time he was born at 7:11pm.
This is the back side of the quilt. I never got a chance to put a little tag on it...something that says..."while I waited for you, etc." But now that he is here and the unknown of whether he is a he or a she is known...I can be less vague and put his real name on the quilt.
He looks good in it, don't you think?
