, , ,

I can finally reveal the quilt that I showed you a block of several months back now that our new grandson has arrived.  (If you recall “The Nonnie” knew that it was going to be a boy but the daughter and family wanted it to be a surprise.)

Walker Reeves West was born May 21, 2013 and weighed in at 8 lbs and was 21″ long.  He is so precious and has already captured our hearts.  Walker is the name of our daughter’s best friend’s dad whose father passed away last year.   Reeves was my mother’s maiden name.  This is great grandchild #15 for my Dad.  He was there at the hospital the whole time.

Here he is a few minutes after birth (and our daughter too!)

Walker’s quilt.

I made the quilt using Inklingo HST.  It took me a while to get the hang of making sure the blocks were properly oriented.  The name is embroidered using the Kaleidoscope font.  I didn’t get a picture of it quilted and with the baby.  I took my camera but didn’t have the battery in it because I had taken it out  to make sure it was fully charged.  (Oops!)  I will get a good picture this weekend.

I have printed out shapes for my next big project and will be cutting them out in the next week as time permits.  I have the three grandchildren with me and will be taking them home this weekend and then staying with my daughter next week.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
