My Own Crib Quilt
I think every Grandma should have a quilt
for when her grandbabies come to visit.
It measures: 54" x 47"
I stitched-in-the-ditch around each square
and then quilted diagonal lines across each block.
The backing is Fresh Air by American Jane Patterns

It's a teeny tiny check that's so soft.
Now I'm all about cutting wool squares.
Nothing easy about cutting up suit coats. Blah.
I'm going to make a pair of wool baby pants out of a sweater.
It'll be a fun experiment.
"Lily" likes to play outside with her sisters,
but she's not walking quite yet and it's still snowy.
Her pants ride up and her poor chubby ankles get cold.
The wool pants with cuffs at the ankle would keep her warm and dry, I think.
The sun is shining and it's up above the freezing mark.
I took a walk to the mail box this afternoon.
I got myself a new book. A quilting book.

I bought it mainly for this quilt,
but there are lots of other quilts I like too.
I'm excited about it.
Have a happy day!
