My nephew and his wife had their first baby on March 19.
His name is John James and we got to visit him on Friday.
He is perfect and he and his parents are learning how to be a family.
It was such a nice visit with them and a joy to get to spend time snuggling that precious little one!
I made this little guy a dragon quilt.
I found a sweet kit with the fabric called "Winter is Here" by Dear Stella.
It was just lines so I thought I needed to add to it a bit.
I added some bunting to the rows.
The black prairie points fabric reminded me of dragon scales!
I also put in a paper pieced dragon.
This is the pattern Baby Norbert and can be found free at Fandom In Stitches.
I enlarged the pattern to make it fit the way I wanted it to.
I am especially happy with the placement of the astericks in his eyes!
I used a bit of the Palm Canyon fabric by Violet Craft for that.
This is what the entire quilt looked like
I used the same flannel on the back that I used for the crib sheets I made.
I hand embroidered a label and my friend Liz did an amazing job on the quilting.
Dragons and dragon riders were the choice for this quilt.
I hope we get to spend some more time with this little one in the near future.
It has been so wonderful watching all our nieces and nephews become parents!
God Bless you JJ and your parents as well.
