This baby quilt has been 7 years in the making. Yes, 7 years. I found these old men's shirts one day and thought they would make a great baby quilt. So I promptly shoved them in a bag and stored them away. I even moved them with me to Santa Barbara in '02, thinking I might want to make that quilt someday.

Well, finally the day came. Our good friends Sture & Amanda welcomed baby Cael to the family on Friday, Jan. 26. Knowing that I was going to see them last Saturday, I finally decided to make something of all these squares. Nothing like pressure to get me going. This was my first attempt at a quilt and no, its not perfect...but it was extremely fun and well worth the work.

While I was in Phoenix to deliver the quilt and meet the little boy I got to capture his 8th day of life on film...or, compact flash card...slideshow coming soon!!!!
