Bits and Pieces
This is our Peanut's birthday quilt. In case you are wondering why we call her Peanut-well, it has been her nickname since birth because of how small she is. Actually, several of the girls are very tiny so we should call them all this but truly it is Miss M's name. Her quilt from her birth is so well loved it is wearing in places and looking all of 4 yrs old. Her sweet mama made her an adorable quilt recently, but my sweet little girl loves her nana's quilts the best. You can tell how that bothers me-NOT! What is a nana to do but whip one together for her birthday. I found this fabric in California in Feb. when we were there so had to get it-it looks so much like Peanut. This quilt isn't the best piecing I've done but I think my stitches are becoming more precise and consistent so for that alone I am happy. If you click on the photos-you can see the cute fabric up close.
Peanut's birthday is on Thursday and I also got a book for her to go with this. It is not a twin size but one that will be manageable to drag around the house all the time. I do have another project I am needing to start very soon; a baby quilt for a friend but I have to wait and see what the sex is of their grandchild.
Have a wonderful day dear ones. Noreen
