Welcome Baby Jordan!

Our good friends Keith and Manon just added an addition to their family. Welcome baby Jordan Edouard Young.  Jordon is the cute baby brother to Elliot who is one and a half.  God bless Keith and Manon for having 2 kids under 2! 

So in my true tradition, I made baby Jordan his very own quilt.  I made one for Elliot when he as born too, you can see it here.

This is a crazy nine patch pattern using the cutest owl and turtle fabric. This is a fun and easy pattern which you can find at Oh Fransson! Elizabeth has the most awesome site with great and easy to follow patterns, tips and tricks.


I found this awesome quilt back fabric at Joann’s.  The match of colours was perfect.  I used a cream thread to quilt, so it’s hard to show.  I sewed stitch in the ditch around each square of colour and then quilted hearts, stars, owls and turtles into each square.


In this block I did his Monogram!


My new machine also allows me to add alphabet stitches to my quilts, so I added Jordan’s name and date of birth!  It slipped a bit at April, so it looks like Aprll, ah well.  Still working with it.


So congratulations to the happy family! I hope he loves his quilt.  Can’t wait to meet you Jordan!

Thanks for looking!
