This is my second quilt for the Baby James memorial quilt project. Quilt one is here. Some background from my previous post: A quilter from an online quilt forum I visit often lost her grandson three days after he was born due to a birth defect. Her son and DIL are expecting another baby later this year, and grandma wants to donate a quilt in baby James’s memory to all the babies in the nursery when the new baby is born. I am honored to make a few quilts for her.
Many years ago I made a trip around the world quilt for my eldest son’s fifth grade teacher when she was moving overseas. Here’s the best picture I could find. The fifth grader grew up and graduated from college last month but I still had bits of fabric from this quilt.
For the baby James project, I wanted to make gender-neutral quilts but this does not even pretend to be one! I quilted one period of a sine wave in the middle and echoed it up and down.
This pattern was easy and quick and looks striking no matter what fabric you use. I think it is perfect for a baby quilt.
Size: 40″x 45″
These impatiens are the only flowers surviving this week of brutal Texas heat with temperatures consistently about 102 F (39 C).
