Neonatal #3 Red, White, & Blue


Red Arrows, 37" x 37"
2.6 yards of fabric

I finished this one with blue gingham for backing and binding.  That seems to soften the brightness a little. I hope some baby boy will grow up to drag it around behind him through toddlerhood.

Our Guild meets tonight, so I will be delivering this with two others I finished this month.  Also my Secret Sister of last year used the FQs I provided to make three neonatal quilts and gave them to me at our holiday party, so the Butterworth Neonatal Unit gets SIX quilts added to their store tonight. [They care for about 1,000 babies a year.]

Zero degrees this morning!  Really makes for crunchy footsteps, and a dog biting his feet.

"Footcare" trimmed my toenails
Bean and ham soup from Liz for six meals

Love the quilt. You did a great job splitting the blocks into 2 fantastic neonatal quilts. The size is just perfect.

I think it's brilliant that you thought about de-constructing the original design and splitting the blocks up. That quilt is lovely ... and I have no doubt that some little boy will cuddle with it and drag it around for years.

Great quilt for a little boy. I also love the way you quilted it, Sara. It looks so soft.
