Ike’s quilt

Written by Ike:

My mama finally finished my quilt.

I know, I should be a little more excited.  But, honestly, she took longer to make the quilt than she took to make me.  Okay, maybe not.  But I can’t do math yet.

I remember back when she was cutting the squares.  I was getting excited.  And she sewed them together pretty quickly, so I had hope and I even cracked a smile!

A few weeks later she gave me false hope by posing me on the back of the quilt.  Really, another quilt photo, mom?  I’ll pretend to act charming anyway.

I gave her a break, though.  I mean, she was sewing the binding by hand like a crazy woman.  (She is crazy.  I can confirm it.  I live with her.)

And then, miracles of all miracles, the quilt was done.  And she confused me by taking a picture of my quilt and my crib—without me.  What the heck, mama?

Oh, I spoke too soon.  Can I just tell you how many photos she took while I sat here on the quilt?  At least 952.  But maybe not that many, because I can’t count.

Don’t worry, I distracted myself with my favorite toy…

Ottomans rule.

And they taste good.  The end!

    I am in love with Ike! I think he and Jack would have some serious adventures together. And I have no words for how impressed I am with you making a quilt. Seriously. Holy moly, Supermom!

    LOVE this quilt! And for some reason just realized that your nursery is “saffron” and grey as well! :) I’ll be coming back for some inspiration for sure.

    Great job on the quilt, it is beautiful and something Ike will treasure forever, I’m sure.
