Tick Tock Gramma - Tick Tock!!! About 3 weeks until Christmas!
Dexter's Quilt was supposed to be done for Dexter's BIRTH day which ended up being March 31st, 2014. Yep...shooting for Christmas at this point...lol Wish me luck... Plan B....1st Birthday :-)
Our sweet angel had a really REALLY rough time coming into this world. He suffered from a birth injury (HIE) Here he is on Day 2.
We'll skip past the details of the 29 day NICU stay, the months and months of worry and concern over the milestones he needed to meet and just say that he is our little miracle. Today, he is a happy, healthy, 8-month old STRONG, SMART baby! :-)
Dexter's Quilt, by far, is the most fun I've ever had making a gift. I need to finish the block border I'm making and sew the panels together still. But omg...SO fun!
This was a very socially involved creation. :-) Very little was done at home in my studio. Community sew days, Quilt Retreats and with visiting friends. Every little critter provided fun and smiles hunting for the fabrics and watching them come alive. :-)
Super Smiley Sunshine!
Dancing Bird (needs his feet still)
Happiest darn lion I've ever seen!
Kangaroo & Joey
Alligator! (Or Crocodile - I forget..)
Bird in flight!
Cow with a barn
Hen (oops! Also needs feet!)
So much fun! I'm doing Bonnie Hunter's "Wonky Wishes" Stars in the border and making the centers all the animal fabrics so Mister Dexter can match em up!
