Kyler's Quilt

Pin It!

I made a baby quilt for my first grandson to be. The shower is next weekend and am very excited. I found this monkey fabric at JoAnn's . It is absolutely perfect as Keith and Felicia are doing a Monkey / Jungle theme baby room. Primarily in light green. I couldn't have designed fabric any better for the occasion!!! I used a pattern out of the Fat Quarter Quilt book by M'liss Rae Hawley. The pattern is called Roman Stripes, I have used this pattern before and just love it. It is a quick and easy pattern and if you are doing a baby size quilt you will have enough for 2 quilts. One for the baby and one for Grandma's house. LOL

I wrote this dedication using Word on my computer and then printed it onto T-Shirt transfer. After ironing it onto white quilt fabric I stitched it on the back of the quilt. Then finished the quilt by binding it with the soft flannel fabric.
Here is the dedication that I used:

This quilt is made of cloth and thread
To place upon your little bed.
It's not an heirloom just to keep,
But to lie upon as you count sheep.
Or perhaps the floor's the perfect place
For a you and your teddy bears picnic space.
This quilt can be anything you can dream
From Superman's cape to the robe of a king.
Pretend it's a raft adrift at sea,
Or just cuddle up when you watch TV
So use it up and wear it out.
I promise I won't yell or pout.
Just tell me when its days are through,
And I'll make another one just for you.
Made With Love By Grandma Christie
Especially for Kyler Timothy Hund

Please, please tell me that you used the "tube" quilting technique on this. If you don't know about it, search for tube quilt on youtube. It is really amazing. The video by missouristarquiltco is the one I like the most.

Tell the truth Christie, you have figured out how to bend time to your will. somehow, I am sure that you get more than 24 hours out of each day. You are like the energizer bunny on speed. The quilt is amazing and the dedication brought a tear to my eye. You never cease to amaze me.

What a special, special gift!! I know the simple cotton blankies my MIL made for our son were the ones I cherished most. When my son found his favorite, she bought more of the same fabric. I still have the frayed remnants of the orginal blankie in his hope chest. Congrats on the upcoming addition to your family.

I thought the quilt was special all by itself. Then I read the sentiment for the back of it! What a beautiful and thoughtful gift for your grandbaby. I hope he has lots of fun with his quilt. Enjoy being a grandma!!!
