A quilt for the new kid on the block

My husband's brother and his wife welcomed their second child just over a week ago, and he is ridiculously cute (if I do say so myself).  A sweet boy needs a sweet quilt, so of course I had to oblige!  He was kind enough to arrive a few days past his due date so I had time to get the quilt completely finished before he was born.

It's a stacked quilt with straight line quilting (my standby... someday I'll branch out!).  The darker blue fabric has little fishies on it, which matches his nursery theme.  I love that fabric and I've had it in my stash since long before I started sewing.  Yes, I was building a stash before I knew what to do with it.  I think that must be high on the list of symptoms of a true fabric addict, don't you?


  1. That is very cute, Leigh. I am sure Kelli, Todd and Trevor will love it!

  2. The colors and the design make this quilt perfect.


Thanks so much for visiting!!!
