Some of you may remember the post I did about Addy's "Baby Thoughts" quilt as well. I found a wonderful and simple tutorial on how to put it together here
From Creations by Kara. Her's is very different than mine but easy to follow and uses the same concepts.
I'M NOT A QUILTER. My compulsive tendency to imperfection causes me to suck at quilting. BUT.... this quilt is supposed to be scrappy and well......imperfect. So it's the perfect quilt for me. And the perfect quilt for any of you "non quilters" to try your hand at.

I think it would be such a special Christmas gift. Out of all the gifts my girls have gotten this year, their "baby thoughts" quilt has been their very favorite. They love to hear stories about the things they did when they wore those clothes, or how old they were, where I bought them....anything (sometimes I can't remember so I make stuff up). I also put a few special pockets on the quilt where I used baby clothes that weren't big enough to make a whole square out of. We like to hide love notes in those. For Lydia's blanket, I started with 8 in. squares, Addy's were 6 in. and Averi's.....well, her's is just a whole different kind of quilt (we'll get to that some other day).
|I adore her.|

|Happy Birthday my sweet Lydia!|
