    Colorful baby quilt

    I made this for my little great nephew. Jaxson was born with severe, bilateral club feet so I wanted to make him something colorful that his mom could bring with for his many doctor appointments ect. He is the happiest little baby and despite his casts and surgeries, he always has a smile on his face funny thing is, he prefers the back of the quilt lol!

    Just a bit crazy.... I sent this out to be long armed because I'm terrified to free motion quilt and wanted it special. Rhonda Dranter quilted it for me. She always does a fantastic job!! Lol I don't even know what a pattern board is!

    I would say I don't know which is more precious, your nephew or the quilt. But I do, your nephew is a sweetheart. The first thing out ot my mouth was AH, AH, AH!!! Please tell me the name of the pattern. I would love to gift the clerk at the local Walgreens who is expecting with one similiar. Keep up the good work!

    A very cute quilt for a super cute little man. I have a nephew that went through the same procedures as a baby and he is now a very successful 22 year old young man. I hope that your great nephew has the same successful results.

    The name of the pattern is Diamond Patch. I bought the pattern from Annies Crafts. If you google the pattern you can see it in other color combinations also

    Mamabear: thank you for the encouragement. I am so happy to hear that your nephew is doing so well! Correcting club feet, especially when severe is quite a process. But Jaxson has fabulous parents and they are very happy with the care he is receiving and the doctors are very positive.
