My Grand Nephew was born on July 1st this year. It’s sooo close to the 4th of July, which would have been a perfect date for his birthday! His mommy and daddy met, fell in love, and married while in the US Army.
He is the happiest, chunkiest, and most adorable baby! I started this quilt for him just before he was born. Then came summer vacation, and cheer season, and halloween… and finally, four months later, I finished it. I made my own binding and it was such a breeze putting it on.
His mommy and daddy did his room in “sports” theme. Since I’m such a baseball lover, I went with the baseballs.
My lovely but very unkepmt granddaughter held it up for me to photograph. She had her hair all tied up on top of her head. You can see her feet and her hair in some of the photos. She made me promise not to identify her on FB if I posted it! The backing fabric was so much fun! It is the US Army logo. I know it doesn’t match the front perfectly, but because they met in the army I had to back it with this fabric! .
