All for baby Jasper.

I can finally show you all the very special name plaque I was able to send to my son and his wife for their new son.

It has been lovingly made up by Angela of My Little Details and working with her to make sure all the details were correct was a very enjoyable experience. Thanks heaps Angela for making it possible for me to be able to give this fabulous name plaque to my son and daughter-in-law.

They are very pleased with it and it goes very nicely in the Nursery….matches the colour scheme really well.

So thank you Angela for a fabulous name plaque and if you would like Angela to make one for your new baby just go here to her website and pick which one you would like.

Before Jasper was born I made a raggy quilt for him.

Then I didn't know wether baby was a boy or girl so I made the quilt in all soft pastel colours. This was the first time I made a raggy quilt and it went together really well and because I bought way too much fabric and didn't want it sitting around here I decided to make another quilt for bub. So he got two quilts.

This one was a disappearing 9 patch method. I loved doing this and then just machine quilted a meandering pattern all over it.

Jasper’s Mummy had to have a bag to carry all his things around in when she went shopping or for walks or visiting so I made up a bag for her from Bronwyn Hayes’ Three Bears Toy Bag. I had the magazine it was in but you can download the pattern from Bronwyn’s blog.

Jasper’s Mummy loves the bag and takes it with her all the time when she goes out. Of course I had to make it in the colours that are her favourite…purple!

All good fun to sew and even more fun to give them to my son and his wife. They loved them all.

have a great week……

hugs to all…..

Oh Vicki,
How sweet are all your gifts for Jasper and how sweet to have a new Grandson. Congratulations honey!

I love scrappy quilts.
I've made a few but all that cutting hurts the hands. You wouldn't want to do it for a full time job. lol
Creative hugs,
