SON OF A SAILOR // pictures on!

recently, i resurrected an old family tradition. when a new baby was on the way, every member of the family would embroider a square that was then quilted together into a baby blanket for the newborn. my blanket was named “pictures on,” and i loved that thing so much!

in conjunction with the baby shower we threw, we also made a baby quilt for rachael & brockett’s little one! it came out beautifully—-not perfect, but made with tons of love—-and we’re so proud of it!









go over to stay still for the full post—-there are lots of photos of the progress of the quilt! it was a first-time quilting and embroidering endeavor for most of us, and i have to say that as intimidating as it was at first, it really wasn’t that difficult! i’ll be making a few more quilts in my day, i think!
