(Pattern available here.)
This new little guy has a big sister, so I thought I would send them an i-spy quilt to give big sister something to
distract entertain her as well. (I am experienced with the reaction of older siblings to new babies. Distraction is a good thing.)
In keeping with my “no-more-hoarding” mentality that I mentioned in the Reunion quilt post, I even broke out the American Jane stash for the back and borders. I know. Shocking right? But you are so proud. I can feel it. The ‘i-spy’ blocks (squares with the novelty prints) came from the i-spy charm packs in my etsy shop. (EDIT: They are sold out! So sorry.) The offset blocks are Essex linen/cotton blend. I love the contrasting texture. You can find it here.
Speaking of American Jane, a little doll quilt for big sister to take care of her own babies. The novelty blocks from this quilt are from a collection called Look and Learn and is a few years old. Again, part of the stash.
In other exciting news, I got my braces off! Yeehaw!! Even though I tried to tell myself the braces made my lips look full like Angelina Jolie’s, in reality it was more of a Jar Jar Binks look. Yesterday I passed some chocolate covered cinnamon bears in the store and thought, sadly, “Those look good, but I can’t have them.” And then I realized, “YES I CAN!” So I bought a ton. Happy day.
