Julian And His New Quilt

This is the fun part of selling on Etsy!  It is a total rush when I get a sale, excitement that someone appreciates my craft.  Getting to see something you made put into action, is a whole different feeling!

Back in April I was contacted by Taylor (also my son's name) wondering if I could make a quilt like the one in my shop, but with different colors.  They didn't have to be dyed fabrics (which is what the listed one was...and thank you for not saying tie-dyed Taylor!), just different and no pink.  We went back and forth on colors, figuring it out was pretty easy. This girl knew what she wanted for her baby.  She wasn't in a hurry.  We had plenty of time. The special day wouldn't be until August.  

The quilt came together months before birth, just waiting...and waiting.  Why?  There would be a monogram patch added after all the stats were known.  A perfect special touch! 

32" x 43"

Lots of straight line quilting, bright bold colors and believe it or not...not one single hand dyed fabric to be found!

And now, let me introduce Julian...

World, meet Julian. 

Julian was born on August 18th at 11:47 p.m. (he seems to like late nights).  He weighed in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. and was 20 3/4" long!  I healthy, happy and 'oh, so dang adorable' baby!

See how he outshines this quilt?!  I don't even see the quilt with him in the picture!  Taylor, you better watch out...this guy is going to break some hearts!

I was very happy that Julian's Mommy took the time to share these pictures with me.  
It made my heart skip a beat!  It made me smile.  It made my day and then some!  Thank you Taylor for finding my shop.  It was such a pleasure working with her!

I would like to thank my friend and fellow Guild member Stefanie.  She was kind enough to monogram the patch with Julian's stats for the quilt!  Stefanie is also the owner of
Cotton Bliss, a fabulous online fabric/notions shop!  Please check it out!
