Naptime!

Hello Everyone,

Yes, I think I can use a nap! But there is definitely nothing more sweet than a sleeping baby, right? Well, maybe a sleeping baby under a quilt!

This particular sleeping baby is my one year old nephew and trust me he is just too cute. He is modeling a small wall quilt that I made years ago for my brother.


At the time, my brother was into cooking with lots of spicy things. So, I wanted to make him a modern sort of quilt with this wonderful chili pepper fabric. Some of you may remember this from "back in the day". I think it was in the early '90's. I would have to look at the label on the quilt to see when I made it exactly.


Here you can see the whole quilt, with my sweet little nephew all snuggled up. I am so happy that it is now being put to good use. I think that the solids were also Kona. I tried to do a gradated effect with the colors too!

Off for my nap now... not really! Just cookie making!


Until Next Time...

I love that quilt Jackie! And great job with graduating colors and the fabric selections. Is there a pattern? I can see it's a very easy block.
