A Quilt For Jack

I doubt she has time to see the blog, what with a new baby... #4!  But I just finished this for her last night.  Little Jack was two weeks early, but all is well :0)

Yes, I know the block in the middle breaks the pattern.  I didn't have quite enough of that blue.  Oops.  That is Gunnar's favorite part of the quilt... because it's different, I guess.  When I realized I was short I thought about making that block "spin" the other way, but I didn't.  Maybe I should have... but too late now!


The backing... well, I have a ton of that.  At one point, back in our old house (which we sold in 2003!), I was going to make a shower curtain out of that and I think I bought four yards.  I'm still using it.

The quilt is beautiful- I love the little bugs and sun/clouds on the fabric! And congratulations to your friend on her new baby boy- there is nothing better than a "Christmas baby!"

Nice work Julie. I like the middle part- it makes a whole different design that's cool anyway! :)

Ruby said...

Yep, I love it too. Beautiful work. I think the middle looks fine and not out of place. Little Jack has a fine gift.

It's beautiful! I have to agree with Gunnar -- I love the middle block, but then I like different too :o). Baby Jack will look very darling cozied up in your handiwork.
