One of my little brothers is having his first son! AHHH, so exciting!!
I LOVE BABIES!!
Naturally, he would just need a quilt from yours truly *huge grin*.
Thus, 'A Hero is Born' was made!
I liked the block design of the pattern 'At the Crossroads' in April 2010 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, so I just changed up the sashing and border a bit. I've never made a quilt from a magazine before, but it was pretty fun.
This is summer guys, there is not much designing going on in these parts with quilting, so I was relying on a good, easy, and quick pattern. This one came through for sure!
Here's the back.
I actually bought the print fabric like 4 years ago because it just screamed to me that I needed to make something for this brother out of it (it has fire trucks, helicopters, ambulances, and police cars).
You see, he is a volunteer fire fighter & EMT and I am a very proud big sister! He just so happened to get mixed up with another crazy fire fighter & EMT and fell in love!! (Again, so proud)
Since they are both All-American Heroes in my eyes, I am just going on a hunch here that yet another hero will be born.
His name is Mason. *huge grin, with tears*
Of course, he needed a matching bib!
Through this experience I realized that I LOVE making baby quilts for people!!!
