Jacob's Quilt!

My best friend, Michelle had her first child on October 22, 2009.  I was lucky enough to be there with her and her family to experience the event.  If you have been reading for awhile I have mentioned a few times that I want to be a midwife so that was an awesome opportunity for me.  Prior to the birth I started working on a quilt for Jacob.  I had no idea how to sew so my mom has helped me with this project every step of the way.  Here are some pictures through the process.

I thought that I did a really great job considering that I just starting sewing last summer.  I couldn't have done it without my mom though.  She helped me every step of the way.  I don't plan on doing any more quilts at the moment but I will probably do some more in the future.  I definitely like to sew and am excited to make new things.  I want to get a better sewing area setup though.  Hopefully the next place we live I can set something up.  I will put up some other craft projects as I go.


  1. It turned out so good!!! I love it. I'm sure baby will cherish it forever ;-)
