At home with Sweet Baby James


How cute is sweet baby James? Adorable! See what he's lying on? That's right, that's his very own quilt!






This is the "back" (aka, the fun part). My friend Joe Filer quilted it and did an amazing job!
To appreciate the quilting, you have to know that the front is a matching game. There are two squares of each fabric, and James (when he's older!) can try to find the two that go together.
So Joe made 6 matching pairs among the starbursts in his quilting design -- and he did it with glow-in-the-dark thread! Awesome!


Sleep tight, Sweet Baby James!

Neat quilting! Joe does quilting for our Quilts of Valor too so I have met him and his wife. I'm sure James will have fun with both the front and back of that quilt, and with the lights on or off. Terrific!

What a great idea for a baby quilt. I also love the quilting. James will love it when he gets older.
