A Quilt for Joey

A very dear family friend of ours had a baby in August, and I am ashamed to say that I have not seen that sweet little guy in person yet, but I did finally get his quilt quilted today. The family lives in Minnesota, so we don't get to see them often enough. I put Joey's name on the quilt in several places, and put hearts and stars in several places too. I even put a crescent moon here and there. On the bottom border, I put his full formal name. It turned out nice. The front is flannel, but the back is just regular cotton. The middle has a thick batting, like warm and natural.
I did this quilt late this morning, then I put the binding on it while my friend Margaret came over and did a couple of her little quilts on the quilter. Wow, I sure did get a lot of sewing done this weekend! The garage is back to normal now, and the cars can be warm tonight

what a lovely quilt. I like the fact that you've put his name in it a few times. It makes it even more personal.

You sure write names well!! It's awesome. I'd love to see a picture where you did his full name (I know why you didn't post it on your blog.)

The baby quilt is so cute. You do such great work. The name in it will make it so special. I love to make quilts after the baby is born so they can be personalized.

I just love how you did the name, that is so cute. I will have to remember that when I finally get my quilting machine.
