A Project For Baby

I have embarked upon a new project for the upcoming grand baby.  I had bought the cutest pattern for a baby photo mat.  You know what I mean, right?  The one where it has weeks/months and you indicate the baby's age with the baby on the mat.  This is the pattern I bought.  I was going to make them for shower gifts.  I didn't know at the time that I would be having a grandchild so soon!

My daughter send me this picture asking me if I could make one like this.  Well I could, but it's not very cute now is it?  This particular one seems very poorly made too.

That's when inspiration hit me!  I have an idea for a mat that involves me paper piecing the numbers, the words "Weeks" and "Months".  I am also going to FPP some hearts.  I'm not ready to share exactly what I want to do but will share the numbers I have finished so far.  I started on them last night and sewed for a few hours.

I managed to get 1-4 and 11 done.

I am so excited to be able to use some of the great "love" fabrics I have collected.
After all the gray and white quilts I have made I have lots of gray scraps!

I love her numbers and the heart is from her too.
The pattern shows them all from the same fabric, but I really love the scrappy version.

Finn and Cole were both trying to help me last night.
Cole is a good boy and lays on the blanket I have for cats.
Finn lays wherever he wants, usually where I am trying to work!

More to come!

I like the idea of you coming up with your own mat!! Your pieced numbers are great... make sure you leave enough room for a growing baby.. my kids were huge by the time they were one!!

This one-of-a-kind photo mat will be special and spectacular; of that there's no doubt!
