    Baby quilt for musician nephew

    This quilt has fatcatpattern roosters in the corner and BQ (Maple Island) blocks in it. I will make a rabbit label for the back once baby is born (the year of the rabbit) The Daddy was born in the year of the rooster & the Mommy was born in the year of the rat. I wrote a poem & quilted that into the quilt as well as music notes.

    I’m a little Rabbit born in 2011
    A beam of sunshine dropped down from Heaven.

    My Momma is a base singin’ Rat born
    A green Alien in a red Bikini she has worn

    My Poppa is a drummin’ Rooster born
    He sports a braided beard that’s not been shorn

    A special addition to the family tree
    My arrival …… That’s me!

    Now that's what I call personalizing a quilt. They will love it.

    What fun. I used that rooster from Fat cat Designs recently, but put more feathers in his tail. He was bit too cool to mix with the others I chose. I like your poem too. Thanks for sharing

    So clever you are to get all of that into a quilt. What a keepsake it will be.
