For grandbaby #2....

This is what my Sunday sewing has looked like...

A quilt for my soon-to-be next Grandson due in March...
Little Riggins...

My daughter saw a doll quilt 
and fell in love with it from
and I did too!
I didn't have the book, just the photo, so
I am trying my best to match it...

Photo from Sew Take A Hike website
She picked all the fabrics:

~~ Lotta Jansdotter's "Echo"
~~ Kate Ward Thacker's line for JoAnn's Fabrics
~~ DS Quilts Collection

And the rest are fabrics all chosen from 
fat quarters at JoAnn's Fabrics.

I am using a 60 degree diamond template from 
Darlene Zimmerman - We found at JoAnn's Fabrics as well.

 Forgive the terrible photos...
I only had my camera phone 
with me today...

Isn't it something, when you are making a 
quilt for anyone, but especially for a new grand baby...
you find yourself dreaming of how their life will be...
or praying for them with each little hum 
of the sewing machine...

It's been a very good day.


  1. Beautiful and what fun it is to dream!

  2. So cute. You did a great job figuring out how to deconstruct the design. I like the fabrics.

  3. What a fantastic quilt design ... I'm impressed you guys could work out a way to make this yourself, simply from looking at a pattern and finding a template! That's amazing!!!

  4. Terrible photos? Are you mad girlfriend. Those photos are great and I just love the quilts you've shown. You are one v. talented lady.
    Love you Loads
